The City Law School is hosting the book launch for Professor Baudenbacher’s latest book, entitled Judicial Independence – Memoirs of a European Judge (Springer, 2019). This book is about law, but it is not a law book. It is aimed at all interested contemporaries, lawyers and non-lawyers alike. Richly seasoned with personal memories and anecdotes, it offers unique insights into how European courts actually work.
