Description

In the modern age of internationalism and globalization, comparative study of law has become a sine qua non for participation in almost all transactions across countries. The Indian Yearbook of Comparative Law 2016 addresses this significant area of legal research and writing in India that has hitherto not received much attention. This volume is a compilation of thematically arranged essays that critically analyse emerging developments, issues, and perspectives across different branches of law. It presents cutting-edge research from scholars around the world with the view that comparative study would initiate dialogue on law and legal culture across jurisdictions. The work does not conflate international law with comparative law, but introduces an essential divide between the two interrelated yet very different disciplines. It also encourages readers to gain a deeper understanding of the working of law and legal systems, leading to important insights into the constituents of an ideal system of law.
