Product description

Studies on Macau Civil, Commercial, Constitutional and Criminal Law aims to contribute to the substantive understanding and preservation of the uniqueness of Macau's legal system by discussing and linking its original, recent evolution and future prospects in a number of selected areas. This book focuses on civil law, commerical law including the law of contracts and copyright law, constitutional law and criminal law from a commercial perspective.

The book tries to help breakdown the language barriers by making access to Macau law available in the English language and is an informative reference for those who do not master any of the official languages of Macau. The book also contributes to the understanding of Macau's legal system as a multicultural entity as it examines the genesis, development and localisation of key areas of law in the Special Administrative Region.

Contributors include academics from the University of Macau and the University of Coimbra (Portugal) and judicial officers from the Portuguse magistracy and constitutional court.
