Introduction to the Law of Croatia
Introduction to the Laws.....Series Volume 15
Croatia, the newest Member State of the European Union, presents practitioners with one of the most complex legal systems in Europe, pervaded today with major ongoing reforms since independence in 1991. Nonetheless, internationally efficient regimes of corporate law, bankruptcy, banking law, financial law, intellectual property, antitrust, employment law, environmental law, and telecommunications law are now securely in place.
This book is the first-ever comprehensive overview of the legal system of Croatia in English. Each of twenty-one local expert contributors provides concise but complete reviews and analysis of many major branches of Croatian law, explaining the implications of legal rules and clarifying ambiguities. Every aspect of legal application is described in substantive and procedural detail, with lucid explanations of Croatian law in the following fields and more:
- structure of the judicial system;
- constitutional order;
- administration and administrative procedure;
- contracts and tort law;
- employment contracts;
- property rights and succession law;
- copyrights and related rights;
- companies and competition rules;
- civil procedure and insolvency proceedings;
- criminal law;
- conflict-of-law rules; and
- tax policy.
