About this database

This trusted work provides one of the most comprehensive and in-depth coverages of German criminal law available. Its strong reputation is based on a combination of academically rigorous and practice-oriented commentary, written by re-nowned authors and contributors from both active legal practice and academia.

Extensive coverage of a wide range of material – from historical origins and debates over reform to comparative analyses and discussion of related areas of law – help to answer obscure questions not covered in competing works. The work provides exhaustive coverage of current judicial interpretations and perspectives in the literature, illuminating routes for the resolution of legal disputes.

The online version provides readers with all volumes published in the current edition so far, and contains links to cited decisions and norms. Advanced search features (via full text, keywords, headings and decisions) ease access to the entire work. Moreover, several updates per year keep the commentary cutting-edge - even between the editions.
