English guide to German criminal procedure
Thank you for providing such good information on German Law in
I am a Barrister practising in Criminal law in Melbourne, Australia.
I am interested in learning about German approaches to particular
issues in criminal matters. Do you know where I can get an English
guide to German criminal procedure?
I have forwarded your enquiry to my German colleagues, who are consulting
with Prof. Heike Jung, to see if he knows of such a book. I will get back
to you if/when I hear anything.
In the meantime, you might be interested in Prof Jung's article on German
criminal law on our server, if you haven't seen it already:
You are not forgotten! It took a little time, but in response to your
enquiry, Professor Jung has recommended the following works for you:
The Criminal Process in the Federal Republic of Germany
in: Delmas-Marty(ed.) The Criminal Process and Human Rights, Nijhoff,
Dordrecht 1995, pp.
[N.B. This is predominantly a comparison with the French system.]
Hatchard et al. (Úds.), Comparative Criminal Procedure, 1996.
van den Wyngaert et al., Criminal Procedure Systems in the European
I hope these titles will be of some use to you.
