Comparative Law Review
As initially conceived of in the Eighties, Comparative Law and Economics provided legal scholars a neutral language for the exploration of similarities and differences across legal systems. Its value added is the theoretical rigour of its models and the possibility to engage in a scientific dialogue not hampered by jurisdiction-specific features. At a later stage, comparative approaches became fully embedded in economic research and its empirical methods. Possible synergies with comparative legal research abound, but the organization of academic structures has so far prevented to fully exploit them.
