60 years of GrundGesetz in The German Law Journal

the new issue of the German Law Journal is now available online at:

The German Law Journal opens its 11th year of publication with a very special special issue: "The Basic Law at 60", concluding finally the year of Germany's great constitutional anniversary while setting out into a new decade, brings together a unique selection of contributions taking stock of six decades of the German Basic Law, with articles by Susanne Baer, Dieter Grimm, Juliane Kokott,Matthias Mahlmann, Hubert Rottleuthner and Brigitte Zypries.

This special issue originates in a lecture  series  sponsored  by  the  German  civil  rights  organization  Humanist  Union  and  the  Law  and  Society  Institute  at Humbold  University's  Faculty  of  Law which  took  place  in  Berlin  throughout  2009  and  took  stock  of  six  decades  of  the  German  Basic  Law  with  commentary from  academia,  politics  and  the  media. Employing  perspectives  from  legal  doctrine,  the  humanities,  or  the  social  sciences,  the  lecture  series  attempted  to contrast  the  normative  claim  of  the  constitutional  text  ?  mirrored  in  the  current  public  law  doctrinal  debate  ?  with  empirical  or  critical  consideration  of contemporary  German  society.  The  German  Law  Journal  now proudly publishes  a  selection  of  these  lectures.
