Comparative law: cases, text, materials
Among the developments considered are the legal changes that have resulted from the demise of the Soviet empire and of ?socialist ? law; the continuing impact that both European Community law and regional human rights law have had on the internal legal systems of European countries; concomitant tensions toward a revised ?common law of Europe? and toward a closer ?convergence? between civil and common law systems; and renewed attention to the methodological problems faced by comparative law, in part because of these other developments.
