Chapter 8: Just ‘the mouth’ of statutory law or more? The theory and practice of judicial regulation in Germany
This chapter provides an overview of judicial regulation in Germany. It demonstrates the impact of judges’ changing roles on the legal system of the country. The chapter starts with a historical summary of German judicial regulation, then outlines the appointment and promotion processes for judges as well as the present ethical and legal framework that constrains judges’ behaviour. The authors evaluate these frameworks and make proposals to improve judicial regulation.
