The Anthology of Swiss Legal Culture aims to make available a collection of classic and contemporary texts charting Swiss influences across various fields of law. As an online project this platform offers the editors the opportunity to continue to modify, refine and expand the texts included as well as add further fields of law that are not yet covered.

We hope that you will enjoy perusing the texts available here and benefit from the background information, summaries and biographies that complement the texts.
