SOME QUESTIONS OF THE LAW OF ARAB COUNTRIES IN GERMAN COURTS* BY HILMAR KRÜGER Cologne A If one had asked a judge or an attorney in Germany perhaps only twenty years ago about questions of the laws of Arab countries, he very probably would have answered, these were problems of merely academic interest. But even academics at that time did not do much research in this field. There were, if any, only a few professors (at any rate no jurists, but orientalists), who studied the Islamic law of the classical age more or less incidentally. Nobody in Germany was seriously concerned with the contemporary laws of the Arab countries. B Those times have rapidly changed. Questions of the laws of Arab countries had to be decided more and more frequently by German courts during the last fifteen years. This fact is due firstly to the constantly rising number of Arab nationals residing in Germany, secondly to the vastly increased economic relations between Germany and these countries during the last three or four years in particular and thirdly to the rising number of Germans travelling in the Orient. * This paper was presented, inter alia, as an introductory address
