Accessible and clearly structured, this is the first book to include examinations of public and private law in the discussion about access to foreign laws. With commentaries by an international collection of leading judges in the field, it looks at the practice in a range of countries spread across the globe.

In jurisprudence an exchange of ideas is essential, as there is no monopoly of wisdom. Legal convergence is particularly beneficial to both public law, as constitution building is done in so many parts of the world, and to commercial law, where enhanced communication, trade and information mean that people have to work more closely together. This book:-

  • examines the theme of judicial mentality and how it helps or hinders recourse to foreign ideas
  • raises and addresses the dangers that accompany comparative law and judicial creativity
  • looks at the practice in America, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Israel, South Africa and at the European Court of Justice.
