I've changed the wrong term (Sicherheitsverwahrung) to the correct term (SicherUNGSverwahrung). Also: In Germany a live sentence does not mea that you will be released after 15 years. I have changed that as well.

I've tried to clean up at least the first half of the article; I'm in the process of finish the rest of it but id like someone to look over everything and make sure I didn't screw up. Cheers, --zachjones4 08:39, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

This is pretty incomplete without a section about the criminal code (StGB). Unfortunately I am not a lawyer therefore someone else will have to write that. -- 08:29, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I am from germany and am studying public administration since september 2006. I therefor have basic knowledge about german law and I could edit the article, but am not a real lawyer. Still, with the help of the german Wikipedia, I think I could do some good work here. I propose:

  • cut the part "general part" more or less completely (it is to long and to specific)
  • concentrate on the aspect "public law" (with "criminal law" and "process law" and "private law")
  • I will try to find some information about history

I will wait some days for your suggestions. SirLuetzow 17:19, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Hello? Is anybody watching this site? If you say nothing, I will start on february the 21th, ok?SirLuetzow 10:49, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

I just added the information that criminal law ist often (very often, also during the studies) considered to be an independent area. I also added the main 5 parts of the BGB, which should be mentioned. I think this should not be a problem.

By the way, I am not quite sure whether we can call Privatrecht = private law and bürherliches Recht = civil law. The words might be translated well, but we should consider that the word Zivilrecht also exists in German and means as much as Privatrecht. But I am not even sure whether it is possible to find a totally correct translation --SilverWiki 12:18, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

I removed a sentence about roman law as the first civilized jurisprudence in the western parts of Germany. Roman law was the law of the romans. It was used in Rome and for Roman citizens. In the provinces local regulations and free decisions of the roman administration were usual. The marriage between siblings for example was forbidden in Rome (according to Roman law), tolerated in the province of Greece and allowed in the province of Egypt. This "Roman law" did not survive the invasion of the barbarians. Thw1309 22:10, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

There is no comment here to support the "original research" tag. Please provide one before adding this tag back.Enon (talk) 02:48, 24 May 2010 (UTC)


References and examples should be added for German law influences on other countries or the sentence should be deleted. (talk) 20:37, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Merger Discussion[edit]

Request received to merge articles: Judiciary of Germany into Law of Germany; dated: {January/2017}. Proposer's Rationale: {Most of the information about the judiciary is linked to the administration of German law}. Discuss here. Matuko 01:07, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Oppose. Many things are linked to German law and its administration, but they are still different. int21h (talk · contribs · email) 02:06, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Oppose. These are two very different concepts. Merging them would be equivalent to merging the pages for "Court" and "Law". Let's not confuse concepts and dumb down humanity. --Nicholas0 (talk) 13:11, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

modern german law[edit]

Its the wrong term. Cause in Germany the law is based since the first german state! Strafrecht in the 187* civil law (bürgerliches Recht) since 1900! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:29, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

before that time there wasn't a german state! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:35, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Relevant templates for deletion[edit]

Opinions are welcome in the discussions on the proposed deletion of two templates used for linking to German legal websites:Template:§§ and Template:German law section. Uanfala (talk) 09:32, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
