    The Grammar of Criminal Law: American, Comparative, and International.George P. Fletcher - 2007 - Oxford University Press.
    The Grammar of Criminal Law is a 3-volume work that addresses the field of international and comparative criminal law, with its primary focus on the issues of international concern, ranging from genocide, to domestic efforts to combat terrorism, to torture, and to other international crimes. The first volume is devoted to foundational issues. The Grammar of Criminal Law is unique in its systematic emphasis on the relationship between language and legal theory; there is no comparable comparative study of (...)

    An Indigenous Lens Into Comparative Law: The Doctrine of Discovery in the United States and New Zealand.Robert J. Miller & Jacinta Ruru - manuscript
    North America and New Zealand were colonized by England under an international legal principle that is known today as the Doctrine of Discovery. When Europeans set out to explore and exploit new lands in the fifteenth through the twentieth centuries, they justified their sovereign and property claims over these territories and the Indigenous people with the Discovery Doctrine. This legal principle was justified by religious and ethnocentric ideas of European and Christian superiority over the other cultures, religions, and races of (...)

    The Cultivation of Cosmopolitan Detachment in Comparative Law: The Hellenistic Contributions.Richard Brooks - unknown
    This article explores the kind of detachment needed to conduct comparative law scholarship and teaching, as well as implement its application to practical problems. The full and fair comparison of the law requires a cosmopolitan view which embodies some degree of detachment from adherence to the laws of one's ``home". The Enlightenment efforts to build a science of comparative law to achieve this detachment failed. Modern inheritors of the Enlightenment approach have similarly failed. In a series of articles, (...)

    While the role of comparative law in the courts was previously only an exception, foreign sources are now increasingly becoming a source of law in regular use in supreme and constitutional courts. There is considerable variation between the practices of courts and the role of comparative law, and methods remain controversial. In the US, the issue has been one of intense public debate and it is still one of the major dividing issues in the discussion about the role (...)

  13. Gifts: A Study in Comparative Law.Richard Hyland - 2009 - Oup Usa.
    Gifts: A Study in Comparative Law is the first broad-based study of the law governing the giving and revocation of gifts ever attempted. First, gift-giving is everywhere governed by social and customary norms before it encounters the law. Second, the giving of gifts takes place largely outside of the marketplace. As a result of these two characteristics, the law of gifts provides an optimal lens through which to examine how different legal systems confront social practice. The law of gifts (...)

    Translating Legal Language and Comparative Law.Jaakko Husa - forthcoming - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique:1-12.
    Legal texts are in the focus of both lawyers and translators. This paper discusses the binary opposition of these two views especially in the light of contract law. There is one crucial epistemic difference between the point of view of the translator and the lawyer when it comes to the interpretation of legal texts. In the translator’s view legal text is traditionally conceived as static as to its nature; something that already exists in the form of text. Traditionally, the translator (...)

    The Limits of Criminal Law: A Comparative Analysis of Approaches to Legal Theorizing by Carl Constantin Lauterwein. [REVIEW]Arlie Loughnan - 2014 - Criminal Law and Philosophy 8 (3):687-691.
    On one level, the focus of The Limits of Criminal Law is captured by its title—the book is concerned with the legitimate boundaries of the criminal law. Lauterwein sets out different approaches to this topic in the German and Australian legal contexts. The book does not formally adopt a comparative methodology, but rather presents ‘an analysis using contextual and comparative elements’ (p. 45). He concentrates on analysing discussion of the limits of the criminal law in Australia, using the (...)

    Law and Culture: A Theory of Comparative Variation in Bona Fide Purchase Rules.Giuseppe Dari-Mattiacci & Carmine Guerriero - 2015 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 35 (3):543-574.
    A key question in comparative law is why different legal systems provide different legal solutions for the same problem. To answer this question, we use novel comparative evidence on how the conflict between the dispossessed original owner and the bona fide purchaser of a stolen good is resolved in different countries. This is the most primitive manifestation of a fundamental legal choice: the balance between the protection of the owner’s property rights and the enhancement of the buyer’s reliance (...)

    In the space of two decades, social rights have emerged from the shadows and margins of human rights jurisprudence. The authors in this book provide a critical analysis of almost two thousand judgments and decisions from twenty-nine national and international jurisdictions. The breadth of the decisions is vast, from the resettlement of evictees to the regulation of private medical plans to the development of state programs to address poverty and illiteracy. The jurisprudence not only implicates our understanding of economic, social, (...)

    Duties and Rights in Negligence: A Comparative and Historical Perspective on the European Law of Extracontractual Liability.Nils Jansen - 2004 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 24 (3):443-469.
    Recent theoretical analysis has exhibited a structural ambiguity in the normative foundation of the tort of negligence, namely uncertainty whether liability is based on the breach of a legal duty or on the responsibility for the victim's loss. This normative ambiguity is due to the fact that the European law of extracontractual liability was conceptually framed for purposes totally different from modern ideas of fair distribution of risks that have historically been connected with rights- based conceptions of tort law. From (...)

    Cross-Border Insolvency Law: A Comparative Institutional Analysis.S. M. Franken - 2014 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 34 (1):97-131.
    Any choice of a state for a cross-border insolvency regime involves a trade-off between increased cross-border economic activity and application of less-preferred substantive insolvency law. A state may be relatively more dependent (‘dependent state’) on the economy of another, less dependent, state (‘dominant state’) than vice versa. This article shows that the dependent state, to increase its gains from cross-border economic activity, has an interest in the dominant state applying territorialism. Applying unilateral universalism vis-à-vis the dominant state, the dependent state (...)

    Law, Person, and Community: Philosophical, Theological, and Comparative Perspectives on Canon Law takes up the fundamental question "What is law?" through a consideration of the interrelation of the concepts of law, person, and community. As with the concept of law described by secular legal theorists, canon law aims to set a societal order that harmonizes the interests of individuals and communities, secures peace, guarantees freedom, and establishes justice. At the same time, canon law rests upon a traditional understanding of (...)

In this book, legal experts address fundamental questions about not-for-profit law from a range of theoretical and comparative perspectives. The essays provide scholarly analysis of not-for-profit law, organised around four themes: Politics, in the broader sense of living as a community, and the narrower sense of political power; Charity, how it is defined and changes in its meaning over time; Taxation, including the rationale (...)

    Locating Humour in Indian Buddhist Monastic Law Codes: A Comparative Approach. [REVIEW]Shayne Clarke - 2009 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 37 (4):311-330.
    It has been claimed that Indian Buddhism, as opposed to East Asian Chan/Zen traditions, was somehow against humour. In this paper I contend that humour is discernible in canonical Indian Buddhist texts, particularly in Indian Buddhist monastic law codes (Vinaya). I will attempt to establish that what we find in these texts sometimes is not only humourous but that it is intentionally so. I approach this topic by comparing different versions of the same narratives preserved in Indian Buddhist monastic law (...)
