The “Staudinger Cornerstones of Civil Law” provides a solid foundation for good lawyering by focusing on the essentials, whether for exams or legal practice: a knowledge of fundamental principles, not details, and an understanding of the system overall, not specialized expertise, thus ensuring preparedness for sound case work.
