Show Summary Details


The number and diversity of the recently enacted laws have resulted in confusion about the state of German civil procedure today. This chapter gives an overview of the most important changes. It focuses on reform that has changed the system of German civil justice in a more fundamental and far-reaching way: The Law on the Reform of Civil Procedure of July 27, 2001. In doing so, it accounts for the changes that have been made to the Code of Civil Procedure more recently through the Law on the Modernization of Justice of July 1, 2004, and the Law on the Remedies for Violations of the Right to be Heard of 2004 of December 9, 2004.
