This is a broad introduction to the German legal system, its terminology and the key concepts running through it. The book describes the history and development of German law as well as explaining existing court systems and the structure of the judiciary. To assist understanding, comparisons with the English legal system are drawn throughout and a glossary of terms is included at the end of the book. The book is primarily a course text for students studying the German legal system as part of a law degree but is written in a style which will also make it interesting and useful for students of comparative law. It will additionally provide a valuable source of reference for practitioners advising clients with interests in Germany. * Introductory guide assuming no previous knowledge of the subject * Written by two qualified German lawyers * Ideal source of first reference for practitioners with clients in Germany.
