Russian Law by William E. Butler

Book Description

When the first edition of Professor Butler's book was published in 1999 it was hailed as the first systematic account of Russian law and the Russian legal system since the demise of the Soviet Union. In this new edition the author builds on his examination of Russian law in the context of other legal systems and makes a thorough examination of the country's legal institutions and prodecural and substantive law. The book has been updated throughout to include the latest codifications on criminal and administrative procedure, tax, labour, land, the environment, civil law, and company law. Butler's emphasis is on post-Soviet law reform and on the creation of a democratic, market-oriented legal framework which seeks to attract foreign investment. Chapters such as those on entreprenurial law, securities regulation, banking and insurance, taxation, and the status of foreigners and foreign investment law make this volume an essential purchase for those advising potential investors in Russia and the CIS. For those with a more academic interest in Russian law there are also chapters on Russian legal history and legal theory, together with a detailed guide to relevant publications and materials. This authoritative work will be embraced by practising lawyers, the investment community, government legal advisers and scholars seeking a comprehensive and practical introduction to the Russian legal system.
