Hungary’s historical connection to the European legal tradition has enabled the country’s legal system to overcome the legal gap caused by political developments after the Second World War. This practical book, far from a simple second edition of the volume published more than ten years ago, details the full-fledged legal system that has been established prior to and since Hungary became a member of the European Union in 2004.
Designed for non-Hungarian practitioners encountering Hungarian law in the course of their work, expert local contributors provide, in English, thorough guidance on legal areas including the following:
- constitutional law;
- administrative law;
- fiscal and financial law;
- family law, property law and succession law;
- company law;
- labour law;
- copyright and patents;
- private international law;
- civil litigation;
- arbitration; and
- criminal law and procedure.
Practising lawyers in every field, business people seeking international markets and academic researchers will find this volume of great practical value when need arises. Its compact yet comprehensive overview of all major areas of Hungarian law is unmatched by any other resource.
The authors of the different chapters are considered to be leading experts of their field.
