This book is about foreign law, the law of a country other than that of the 'national' lawyer, and how to engage with it. The number of books about foreign or comparative law or comparative methodology has grown in recent years - in Europe because of European integration, the world over because of the globalization phenomenon.There are many reasons for wishing to engage with and understand foreign law; for instance local law may be underdeveloped, unclear or deficient, and recourse to foreign law may help strengthen the conviction that change is needed - and even suggest what form it should take. However, this book is not really interested in merely describing foreign law, but in showing how to analyze foreign ideas, concepts and institutions, and then explaining how to 'package' or 're-package' them so as to make the material usable in one's own national context.This book is then about legal methodology (more particularly comparative methodology) as well as substantive foreign law, and in this it goes a step further than most comparative law works both in terms of content and philosophy. The authors also provide personal impressions and background about the subject and its protagonists, demonstrating to the reader how much comparative law has developed and changed during the last forty years. The reader should be prepared for a book which will inform and provoke in equal measure, and which will also prove fun to use in the classroom.This book presents an original and provocative approach to Comparative Law. It is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students of comparative law. There will be global interest wherever there is debate about whether foreign law can be used to supplement domestic law. The authors are leading scholars of comparative law and have both written extensively in this field.
