About This Guide

This research guide provides a brief overview of German legal research. Germany is a federal parliamentary republic organized into three branches of government.  The executive is headed by the President, who is more than a figurehead, but has less authority than the President of the French Republic.  Executive power is centered in the Chancellor and the cabinet.  The legislative branch is bicameral, consisting of the lower house (the Federal Assembly or Bundestag) and the upper house (the Bundesrat).  The Bundestag is the more powerful of the houses.
