Basil Markesinis, Jorg Fedtke. Engaging with Foreign Law thus aims to carve out a new niche for comparative law in this era of globalisation, and may also be the only book which deals in some depth with both private and public law in countries such as England, Germany, France, South Africa, and the United States.

Corporate law is an arena in which the metaphor of the states as a laboratory describes actual practice, and, for the most part, this is a laboratory that has worked reasonably well. The goal of this paper is to map out over time the diffusion of corporate law reforms across the states. The law-making pattern we observe indicates a dynamic process in which legal innovations originate from several sources, and a period of legal experimentation that tends to identify a statutory formulation that is adopted by the vast majority of states.

Ideal for practitioners and academics, it is an essential read for those working in or studying jurisprudence at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

This book is about foreign law - the law of a country other than that of the 'national' lawyer and how to engage with it. There are many reasons for engaging with and understanding foreign law. For instance, local law may be underdeveloped, unclear, or deficient, and recourse to foreign law may help strengthen the conviction that change is needed, and even suggest what form it should take. This book shows how to analyze foreign ideas, concepts, and institutions, and then it explains how to 'package' or 're-package' them so as to make the material usable in one's own national context. Engaging with Foreign Law is about legal methodology - more particularly, comparative methodology - as well as substantive foreign law, and it goes a step further than most comparative law works both in terms of content and philosophy. The authors also provide personal impressions and background about the subject and its protagonists, demonstrating to the reader how much comparative law has developed and changed during the last forty years. Engaging with Foreign Law will inform and provoke in equal measure, and will also prove fun to use in the legal classroom setting.
