Hugo Preuß is regarded as the father of the Weimar Constitution. It was not until now that it has been realized what the German Basic Law owes to the constitutional work done in Weimar. His work on the Weimar Constitution is impressive due to its inner consistency and the fact that it was completely up to date.
After the Kaiser's escape and abdication, Hugo Preuß became the minister of the interior and was commissioned to prepare a draft of a democratic constitution for the future. He is regarded as the father of the Weimar Constitution. It was not until now that it has been realized what the German Basic Law owes to the constitutional work done in Weimar. His work on the Weimar Constitution is impressive due to its inner consistency and the fact that it was completely up to date. Unlike mystified state sovereignty, he developed a multilevel model which is rooted in the democracy of the municipalities and the federal states and which sees a part of its own legal system in international law above the state as a whole.
