Charting the Divide Between Common and Civil Law

Thomas Lundmark

  • Examines law in Germany, the UK, Sweden, and the U.S., and uses the rich academic tradition of Germany as a benchmark against which other legal systems are measured

  • Provides the reader with an analytical matrix through which to compare the four jurisdictions under study
  • Explores the contention that lawyers in other jurisdictions "think" differently about the law and offers results of a survey asking this quesion
