What is Comparative Law

Comparative Law is the study of the relationship between the legal systems of different countries and their differences and similarities of the law in these various countries. These systems include Chinese law, Islamic law, Jewish Law, Hindu law, socialist law, Canon law and civil law. Comparative law has increased in the present age of democratization, globalization and internationalism and plays a role in a better understanding of foreign legal systems. This legal study has developed into several branches, including comparative criminal law, civil law (in the sense of the law of torts, delicts, contracts and obligations), commercial law (in the sense of business organizations and trade), administrative law, and comparative constitutional law.  Related Articles here.
