Resource for criminal justice comparatists

A great new resource for English speakers doing comparative research on criminal justice issues: it's an English translation of the Strafgesetzbuch, the German Criminal Code, is now available here, courtesy of the Bundesministerim der Justiz, Germany's Federal Ministry of Justice.
The translation's the fruit of hard work by our colleague Michael Bohlander, formerly a German judge and Senior Legal Officer at a Trial Chamber Office of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, longtime Editor-in-Chief of the International Criminal Law Review (on whose editorial board yours truly is honored to serve), and now Professor at Durham Law School in England.

Herzlichen Dank!
