  Comparative law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Comparative law is the study of differences and similarities between the law of different countries and, more generally, of the different legal traditions, the common law tradition, the civil law tradition and the socialist law tradition.
Several disciplines have developed as separate branches of comparative law, like comparative constitutional law and comparative civil law (in the sense of the law of torts, delicts, contracts and obligations) and comparative criminal law.
Comparative law is an academic study of existing separate systems, each one analysed in its constitutive elements, how these difference elements differ in the different systems and how these elements are combined into a system.
