This text presents a broad range of aspects of Austrian law and legal culture for the purpose of comparison with other legal systems. It treats the following subjects: political history, the constitution, sources and interpretation of law, the political system, Austria and the European Union, legal education and professions, the courts, administrative adjudication, constitutional review, fundamental rights, criminal procedure, the civil law tradition, and the Austrian civil code. These characteristic features have been selected in order to acquaint the foreign observer with some of the defining elements of Austrian law and legal development. Austrian students and practitioners, too, may find this approach helpful when it comes to explaining their law to others.
