The studies which are published in this book are the general reports and some of the conference papers which were discussed at the 1st World Law Conference, which was held in Brussels, 9-12 September, 1996. Reports on the discussions during the sessions are also included. This conference was based on the International Encyclopaedia of Laws, which now covers 18 major fields of law and is published by Kluwer Law International. The authors and participants, who were from no less than 50 countries, met in order to build bridges of understanding across cultural boundaries in an attempt to grasp, appreciate and respect both similarities and differences in order to be able to work together with a better understanding of the culture and traditions which form each country's unique legal culture. This is why 'culture And The law' was the major theme of the conference. Different fields of law were covered in 30 general reports, highlighting recent developments in their respective fields, and were discussed in 12 work groups (apart from Law and Culture): Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contract Law, Criminal Law, Environmental Law, Family and Succession Law, Intellectual Property Law, Labour Law and Industrial Relations, Medical Law, Social Security and Transport Law. In publishing them the editor and authors want to share the knowledge and insights they contain with the global legal community.
