The present book is an updated version of the very favourably received book Swedish Law in the New Millennium, published in 2000. It contains a summary presentation of the Swedish legal system, written by leading Swedish experts in their respective legal fields. It is intended to be used by foreign law students participating in introductory courses in Swedish law, foreign legal professionals looking for fundamental information about the Swedish approach to a particular legal problem and Swedish lawyers when communicating with foreign colleagues. While the book can be read from cover to cover, each chapter can also be read independently. The space constraints make simplification unavoidable, but at the end of each chapter there is a bibliographical notice providing suggestions for further reading.
