Trilingual Swiss Law Dictionary

French-German English, German-French-English

Authored by Thomas L. West III
Edition: 1

This is the first trilingual dictionary focused solely on Swiss legal terms, translating them from French into German and American English and from German into French and American English (including hundreds of terms for which does not provide an English translation). It is fully up-to-date and includes the new terminology of Swiss civil procedure and criminal procedure that have been in effect since 2011. In addition to those two areas of law, the dictionary also covers civil law, criminal law, constitutional law, debt collection and bankruptcy, and corporate law. Particularly tricky terms are accompanied by a brief explanation, and where the term differs from the one usually used in France or Germany, the term from those countries is indicated as well. At the end of each half of the book is a list of abbreviations and acronyms frequently encountered in Swiss legal writings, including many single-letter abbreviations that would be impossible to find by searching online. For many of the terms, the dictionary references the precise section number where they can be found in the relevant Swiss Code or Act, making it the perfect place to start an Internet search for additional information.
