German Legal System and Laws provides a comprehensive introduction to the German legal system and the core areas of substantive law.

Constitutional law is the foundation of German law and this area has been given fuller consideration in this fourth edition. The constitutional organs of state, basic rights and administrative law are all thoroughly explained.

The text has been fully amended and updated with regard to a wealth of legislation and case law which has radically altered the course of German law with considerable attention being given to the development of private law.

Also included are expanded and updated extracts from the Grundgesetz and fully revised glossaries of German legal terms.
