Comparative Law (3080)

This course will examine the development, distribution, and current structure of the two dominant legal traditions in the world today: the Romano-Germanic civil law tradition and the Anglo-American common law tradition. Greater emphasis will be placed on the more widely diffused civil law tradition. Topics to be studied will include the history and evolution of each tradition; the roles of legal actors and institutions; the sources of law; legal procedure; and legal and constitutional structures.
