A resource guide explaining the legal system in Switzerland with bibliographic details of sources and links to materials available on the internet. The guide was written by Fridolin M.R. Walther who is an attorney-at-law with Gubler Walther Leuch in Bern, Switzerland. This latest version of the guide was published in LLRX.com in September 2003. The guide is in English but includes links to resources in German or French. Basic facts about the history and structure of the Swiss government and legal system are included, with guidance on researching Swiss law through primary legal information such as treaties, legislation and case law and secondary information such as law journals. The main sources of Swiss statute and case law are listed, both public domain and subscription, paper copy and electronic versions, with hyperlinks if available. Additional information is given on the legal profession, libraries and legal publishers with a selected bibliography of standard Swiss texts. LLRX.com (Law Library Resource Xchange) is a free online web journal for legal information professionals.
