Summary

The aim of this book is to introduce the student to the family of legal systems common to Europe, Latin America and East Asia. A distinguishing feature of this book is its deemphasis of rules and related doctrine. Greater attention is paid to the social and intellectual climate, institutional structures, roles played by legal professionals and procedures characteristic of the legal system since these are more instructive.
