This publication, now in its second completely revised and upgraded edition, is the ideal overview of Belgian law for foreign lawyers. This book identifies the basic legal sources, institutions and concepts of Belgian law. It offers an up-to-date, state of the art systematic and critical rendition of the principal branches of the law as practised, and it provides the necessary historical background and theoretical framing.

It consists of sixteen chapters, covering all major fields of Belgian law including:

  • constitutional and administrative law;
  • procedural law;
  • criminal law;
  • family law and trusts and estates;
  • property, contracts and torts;
  • commercial transactions and company law;
  • labour and social security law;
  • tax law; and
  • conflicts of laws.

Both a valuable handbook for practitioners and a comprehensive survey of Belgian law and legal institutions, this book – written for a diversified, primarily for non-Belgian readership – provides information and guidance to navigate through legal proceedings 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.
