  • De kleine Hoge Raad voor Dummies

    May 6, 2019

    Afgelopen maandag mochten wij uit handen van de bibliotheek/het kennisplein van de Hoge Raad der Nederlanden een donatie ontvangen. Hartelijk dank! De kleine Hoge Raad voor Dummies vertelt over de Hoge Raad, de hoogste rechter in ons land op het gebied van het civiel-, straf- en belastingrecht. Het boekje legt op een toegankelijke manier uit wat de taken van de Hoge Raad zijn (en wat juist niet) en beschrijft op welke manier de Hoge Raad die taken uitvoert. Ook lees je over de geschiedenis van de Hoge Raad, zijn organisatie en de procureur-generaal bij de Hoge Raad en zijn parket. Bovendien gaat het boekje in op de betekenis van een ‘rechtsstaat’ en de rol van de hoogste rechter daarin. Maarten Feteris is president van de Hoge Raad en hoogleraar formeel belastingrecht aan de Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam. Jason van Heusden is de persoonlijk medewerker van de president van de Hoge Raad en raadsheer-plaatsvervanger in het Gerechtshof Amsterdam.
