The Spanish Legal System provides a straightforward and logical introduction to the Spanish legal system for English readers. No other general text in English explains the history, sources, institutions, court structures and the main principles of procedure of the Spanish legal system.

Spanish legal concepts and terminology are clearly explained, and emphasis is placed on the distinctive characteristics of the Spanish system, such as the co-existence of regional and national civil law, the territorial and political division of the State into Autonomous Communities and the relationship between central State legislation and autonomous legislation. No previous knowledge of the system is assumed and readers need not be Spanish linguists nor have access to original source material.

  • Highlights distinctions between the civil and common law systems
  • Introductory guide assuming no previous knowledge of the subject
  • Detailed glossary.
