Now in its third edition, Introduction to Greek Law remains the sole
comprehensive summary of Greek law in a language other than Greek. In twenty
insightful chapters, written by some of the best authorities on Greek law in
Greece and in the United States, the book provides both analysis and
commentary on the various aspects of theory and practice in contemporary Greek
law, concentrating on comparative law aspects and on differences with
corresponding concepts in the Anglo-American system and in other European
systems. The third edition covers all these areas of substantive law and legal
practice and more:
the Greek Constitution and its relation to international law and the European
structure and distribution of state powers;
effect of EC directives;
regulatory authorities and administrative action;
corporations and partnerships;
commercial and maritime law;
contracts and torts
marriage, divorce, and filiation;
choice of law and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments;
investment incentives; and
criminal law and procedure.
Of special value is the attention to recent revisions of civil, commercial and
procedural laws, particularly in the fields of conflict of laws, procedure,
property, obligations, succession, and family law. Bibliographies accompany
each chapter, and useful appendices include comprehensive lists of statutes,
cases, and international conventions. Introduction to Greek Law has been
well-received internationally in its earlier editions, and the Third Edition,
with its thorough updates, is sure to be equally welcomed by practitioners and
