A standard legal resource since its first edition in 1978, Introduction to Dutch Law has proven itself the ideal overview of Dutch law for foreign lawyers. The Fourth Edition updates the subject with continuing changes in the Civil Code, including the major new law of succession of 2003, and with the ongoing Europeanisation of Dutch law observable in all legal areas, most recently in criminal procedural law.

The various chapters have been written by experts scholars, practitioners, jurists in particular fields, and provide an authoritative overview. The history of Dutch law is discussed, as well as Dutch legal culture, the judicial organisation, legal education, and the legal profession. This is followed by an introduction to essential issues of Dutch private and public law and Dutch labour law. The last chapter examines questions of legal philosophy.

As a thorough guide to further research, Introduction to Dutch Law is unmatched. It offers practitioners, particularly foreign lawyers, a quick and reliable way into any area of Dutch law that they may be required to research. It will also be of great value to comparativists (especially those studying the influence of European law on national legal systems), scholars, and students.

Like previous editions, the Fourth Edition of Introduction to Dutch Law has been prepared under the auspices of the Netherlands Comparative Law Association.
