about this item

This book comes as the first English language, systematic overview of Swiss criminal law. It provides a gateway for lawyers who are unfamiliar with this legal order, yet have an academic or practical interest in it. And it gives lawyers with a background in Swiss law a useful tool when working in English. The book brings into focus the basics of criminal law and links it with criminal procedural law, the rules on transnational cooperation in criminal matters and the parameters flowing from constitutional, international and European law. It deals with core questions of criminal law: what amounts to a criminal offence, how is criminal liability determined and what are its consequences? Furthermore, it provides general insight on international criminal law, which plays an increasingly important role. To fulfil its gateway function, the book concludes with a practical guide to Swiss criminal law and a thesaurus.
