Comparative law is the study of different legal systems. Comparative law is important for a couple of reasons. It is important because of the globalization of world trade which brings a need for people to do business in other societies that have different legal systems. Another reason it is important is because of the move towards the harmonization of laws. Comparative law is a great tool in understanding the law of other societies instead of just the society in which you live in.
