Germany's Place in World Justice

CK - Washington.   The German justice system is ranked near the top in a comparison of justice systems of the world. The Rule of Law Index published on June 13, 2011 by the World Justice Project finds the German civil justice system not only fair but also affordable -- one of several causes of German misperceptions of the cost of litigation in the United States. The 158-page report highlights Germany on page 22:
Germany is one of the world's leaders in many dimensions of the rule of law. Government accountability is strong (ranking 5th out of 66 countries) and corruption is minimal (ranking 12th). The country's civil justice system ranks 2nd out of all countries, which is characterized by the affordability of attorneys, accessibility and efficiency of courts, and lack of undue influence. Police discrimination against foreigners, however, is perceived to occur.
