Like many of you, when returning to the office after working from home this spring, we were inundated with mail.

Among the hundreds of shipping boxes awaiting us were more than 20 filled with German serial titles. I know that Germany is one of the more prolific publishers of legal material, but to see it all at once like that was truly something!

So I thought that for this edition of On the Shelf, I would provide a bibliography of just some of these titles and the range of topics they cover.

Agricultural laws and legislation

Automobiles: law and legislation

Civil procedure

Civil rights

Commercial Law

Corporation Law

Criminal law

Domestic relations

Ecclesiastical law

Education law and legislation

Insurance law

Labor laws and legislation

Medical laws and legislation

Military law
