German gambling laws are on shaky grounds nowadays. This has been especially true since an amendment to the Basic Law in 2006 aimed to reform federalism. Professor Hartmann contrasted the laws relating to casino gambling with those governing gambling in parlors. He detected severe incoherencies and inconsistencies between the two which violate European Union and German constitutional law respectively. His findings are included in a book which Hartmann co-authors with Professor Bodo Pieroth, Muenster University, and which is to be published with Nomos on May 24, 2013. Learn more.
