Introduction to Belgian Law clearly describes the legal system of Belgium’s two constitutionally mandated regional communities. These two legal systems, each with its own legislature and judiciary, make working with Belgian law particularly challenging. This very useful book, now in its second edition, provides a comparison of the distinct and overlapping competences of the two legal systems, making it the ideal overview of Belgian law for foreign lawyers. It features an up-to-date, systematic, and critical rendition of the principal branches of the law as practised in all parts of Belgium, with the necessary historical background.

What’s in this book:

The contributing authors cover the legislation, procedure, case law and legal doctrine affecting each field of legal practice in turn and also pay close attention to such overriding details as the following:

  • role of the Constitutional Court;
  • effect of the layers of regional, European and international law;
  • customary law and general principles;
  • human rights treaties;
  • finding legal information; and
  • legal education and legal professions.
Each of the sixteen chapters is written by a regional expert in a particular field of law and concludes with a bibliography of works in several languages.

How this will help you:

Both a valuable handbook for practitioners and a comprehensive survey of Belgian law and legal institutions, this book provides more than sufficient information and guidance to navigate through any legal proceeding with a Belgian element. This book helps lawyers, scholars, business persons and government officials in facing and overcoming the challenges inherent in engaging with Belgium’s complex legal realities.
