The Netherlands are a small country, but they have many laws. In handling them, Dutch lawyers tend to be pragmatic: they use them to solve problems, not to create additional ones. If they do create problems, they try to find a way around them. If must be, they ignore them. Only if even that meets with resistance, they change them. Because of its non-legalistic learnings Dutch legal culture favoured a pragmatic public administration, a mild penal climate & an informal civil justice. This book contains a 'journey' through selected aspects of Dutch legal culture which is presented by comparing, the Court System, the Legal Profession, Informal Justice in Civil Courts, Criminal Policy & a very Dutch legal term 'beleid'.
