"Civil/Criminal Proceedings"

•Subject: Civil/Criminal Proceedings •Author: anthony tam •Date: 15/4/2000

Are court proceedings in Deutschland generally open to the public? If yes, do spectators need a "permit" of some kind in order to observe? Location: Where can I find the main jurisdiction in the city of Frankfurt, for civil and/or criminal proceedings? Do Germans use jury system?

Court proceedings are generally open to the public in Germany. You do not normally need a permit to enter. Checks may be made for security relevant cases. Some distribution of seats may take place where there are more spectators than seats available. The "main jurisdiction" for civil/criminal proceedings in Frankfurt is either the Amtsgericht or the Landgericht. Search the internet for "Gerichtsliste" or similar, and you are likely to find some website with the addresses. There is no jury system in Germany. German law employs honourary judges, i.e. laypeople who sit on the bench together with one or several professional judges and who have the same vote as the professionals on issues of both fact and law.
