[Extract] Most English-speaking lawyers are unfamiliar with the work of Joseph Isensee,<sup>1</sup> an eminent jurist and sometime contender with Jürgen Habermas,<sup>2</sup> as well as a leading writer on the law of the German Constitution. Isensee's Handbook of German Constitutional Law has been a leading text for many years,<sup>3</sup> and his various interventions over time have lead to a number of significant awards, including the Ring of Honour of the Görres-Gesellschaft in 2013.<sup>4</sup>
The aim of this Article is to translate and comment upon some of Isensee's work and the arguments surrounding conscience protection under the German Basic Law (Grundgesetz).
