The aim of the course will be to sketch the different developments of modern European law both on the Continent of Europe and in England and the U.S.A.  The content of the course will be historical and cultural as it will proceed to demonstrate the impact which Roman law, political and other geographical factors, have had on the emergence of modern European culture and legal science.  It will trace the development of the law in modern Europe from the Middle Ages to modern times and the European Union while also drawing contrasts with the law in the U.S.A.

The course will be especially interesting to students who wish to take a break from "black letter" law courses.

A collection of photocopied materials has been assembled for the purpose of sparing students the task of looking up articles and other materials from many sources.
