This is the current version of the class “hausarbeit-jura” for
writing “juristische Hausarbeiten” at German universities. It
was originally developed for a workshop at Trier University.

The idea is to make the usage of LaTeX easier as only a few macros and
environments are needed.

The documentation is in German only.

Stable versions are always uploaded to CTAN. You'll find the most recent developer version on GitHub.
