Höfler, Stefan; Nussbaumer, Markus; Uhlmann, Felix (2020). Legislation in Switzerland. In: Karpen, Ulrich; Xanthaki, Helen. Legislation in Europe: A Country by Country Guide. Oxford: Hart Publishing, 481-496.

Abstract

Switzerland has a multi-lingual, multi-layered civil law system. Its current legal system was established in 1848, when the modern Swiss state was founded, and has been further developed since then. Swiss legislation has come to be shaped by three basic constitutional tenets: federalism, direct democracy and separation of powers. Individually and together, these tenets have created unique political necessities and legislative traditions.
