Course Description

Legal systems, "religious", "professional", "customary" and "autocratic," differ and in many areas need to be accommodated by other legal systems. The course will exam the characteristics of various legal systems and the accommodations that  "professional" systems such as the Common Law and Civil Law systems have made to religious and in some cases customary legal systems by first examining the nature and history of legal systems and then focusing in on the distinguishing characteristics of the Common Law and Civil Law systems that mark Western countries hoping to answer the question,"is there a different thought process between Civil Law systems (which predominate in the Western and advanced economy world) and Common Law which is an offshoot of feudal England carried to English colonies, and, if so, how does that affect international judicial forums whose members cross the Civil/Common Law divide. Lecture (plus Questions)
