There are a lot of regulations in Germany and yes you might get frustrated by some of them…. but you will appreciate them at the end, believe me!
I am working in a court doing my Praktikum and I can tell you that the court system is far from perfect ;-)…well to some extend. One often has to wait up to 12 months (or even more) to even get an initial court date. Judges are often over worked and rarely prepare for cases, thus many mistakes are made… unlike what I have seen in the USA.
