  • Tabular overview of important, examination-relevant Supreme Court judicial decisions

Aims and Scope

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.

This revised 2014 edition offers:

Essential German supreme court decisions relevant for exams presented in table format.
Thanks to a summary of recent changes in the German civil code relevant for exams in the ?"Current German civil law 2013/2014" section, this new edition saves you time.
Exclusive: Entries that integrate and explain the interrelationships between areas handled separately by the German civil code (for example "infringement of contractual obligations", "tort law", or "contract types").
Discussion of the relevance of European law and current debates in European law that affect (or could affect) German civil law.
Affordable: Over 1,200 pages of valuable information in the paperback edition of only € 69.95.
In short: "Students as well as lawyers of all ages should learn first-hand that this is a superbly designed book." (ZAP Review of Books, ZAP number 4, 16 February 2011)
