Is Common Law really all that common around the world? Is a defendant ""innocent until proven guilty"" in Romania? How does the court system of California stack up against the one in Cambodia? Marxist jurisprudence vs. feminist jurisprudence? And just what does a barrister do? And justice for all. Every legal system on earth guarantees it. But which ones live up to the credo? And why do others fall short of the mark? This title answers these critical questions.;From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, this four-volume set, with nearly 400 entries, explores the structure, operation, and history of legal and judicial systems in every country on earth, every state in the US and every province of Canada. It also analyzes transnational judicial bodies such as the World Court and European Court of Human Rights, examines alternative legal systems from Roman to Islamic law, and explains universal legal institutions and concepts, from law schools to constitutional review.
