Communal and intercommunal law
The extremely varied tasks undertaken by communes – holding elections and votes (initiatives and referendums), town planning and building inspections, waste management, schools, etc. – are sometimes a source of litigation between these collective bodies and their citizens. The constant development of intercommunal relationships also poses legal problems, especially between the communes involved. It is not uncommon to have to draft complex agreements to govern aspects such as school catchment areas, regional police and other responsibilities that several communities want to manage together and for which they have to share decision making power as well as costs. Similarly, relations with the canton also require the evaluation of difficult legal questions.
