The Civil Code of the Netherlands
This second edition of the English translation of the whole of the Dutch Civil Code will be immensely valuable for the non-Dutch speaking readers and lawyers, businessmen and private individuals interested in research or study into the Dutch civil law. Since the publication in 2009 of The Civil Code of the Netherlands, which contained a translation of the Civil Code as in effect on 1 October 2008, significant new statutory provisions have been enacted in the field of civil law. Possibly the most important is the addition of a Book 10, which entered into force on 1 January 2012.
The translators, who are continually striving to improve the translation of certain terminology, are Hans Warendorf, a former senior partner of the prominent Dutch law firm Van Doorne, and Richard Thomas, partner of Vedder Price LLP, London, who are both experienced legal practitioners from international law firms with a twenty-year track record of translating Dutch company and commercial laws, and Dr. Ian Curry-Sumner MA (Cambridge), owner of the Dutch legal advice firm Voorts Legal Services in Utrecht, with more than ten years experience translating and lecturing Dutch family and inheritance law.
