Students who usefully complete the course will have a distinctive advantage in the global market of legal practitioners. Comparative law increases the knowledge, in theory and in practice, of a spectrum of legal systems such as US common law and the south Asian legal traditions. As such, the emphasis of the course is on understanding `why and how' different legal traditions execute the same basic functions required from a legal system such as regulating a market economy, solve international disputes, protecting rights. In addition, comparative law broadens students understanding the choices made in their own legal system.
