Advancing legal scholarship in the area of mixed legal systems, as
well as comparative law more generally, this book expands the
comparative study of the world's legal families to those of
jurisdictions containing not only mixtures of common and civil law,
but also to those mixing Islamic and/or traditional legal systems
with those derived from common and/or civil law traditions. With
contributions from leading experts in their fields, the book takes
us far beyond the usual focus of comparative law with analysis of a
broad range of countries, including relatively neglected and
under-researched areas. The discussion is situated within the
broader context of the ongoing development and evolution of mixed
legal systems against the continuing tides of globalization on the
one hand, and on the other hand the emergence of Islamic
governments in some parts of the Middle East, the calls for a legal
status for Islamic law in some European countries, and the
increasing focus on traditional and customary norms of governance
in post-colonial contexts. This book will be an invaluable source
for students and researchers working in the areas of comparative
law, legal pluralism, the evolution of mixed legal systems, and the
impact of colonialism on contemporary legal systems. It will also
be an important resource for policy-makers and analysts.
