COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
LW410 COMPARATIVE LEGAL SYSTEMS 2019 2 Law 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course uses a comparative approach to study the three major legal systems of the world: the English common law system, the civil law system (and its branches) of continental Europe, and the Islamic legal system. These three systems are the foundation for the laws and legal systems of most of the world today, including Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and east Asia. Similarities and differences between these systems and the American legal system are explored. Social, political, and economic factors which distinguish these systems and more recently have begun to integrate them are covered. Emphasis is placed on the sources of law, the procedures for resolving legal disputes, and basic principles of civil and criminal justice.
