Kornet, Nicole Hardt, Sascha
This selection of national, European and international legal provisions, which have proven to be particularly relevant in comparative legal studies, aims to help students, academics and practitioners in their comparative law work.This third edition is an expanded and updated volume. It covers the areas of constitutional law, administrative law and administrative procedure, criminal justice, European and international human rights law, property law, tort law, national and European contract law, civil procedure, private international law, company law, international business law and international tax law. For each area, a selection of important legal provisions from France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom is provided. This includes domestic constitutional and statutory provisions, provisions from international treaties and instruments of the European Union. In addition, selected sources from the United States are provided.Sources are reproduced in the original English or are rendered as fresh English translations under critical editorship. Unlike many other translations, The Maastricht Collection remains true to the content, style and syntax of the original texts. This allows the reader to appreciate not only the substance but also the authentic form - and the beauty - of foreign legal sources.
