An increasing number of lawyers from other countries are conducting research or are employed at Danish universities. There has furthermore been an increased interest in Danish law from abroad due to co-operation between law firms and also public authorities across borders.
The fact that Denmark is an EU member state also contributes to this interest. These observations constitute the background for this short book. Its purpose is to provide knowledge of the legal sources that are applied in Danish law and at the same time supply an insight into how legal method is used in the Danish legal system. Accordingly, the book may be viewed as a key to the understanding of Danish law.
