Semester 2 Off campus offering is only available for outbound exchange students studying an equivalent unit overseas on approved international exchange.
Summer School unit
This unit will focus on the main features and institutions of legal systems. The content will take a historic and comparative approach to the main legal systems, namely, the common law and civil law systems, focusing more primarily on the European or Continental systems. More specifically, the course would deal with the role of the legislature, judges, legal education and professions, etc. from a historical and comparative perspective. It also would cover, among other topics, important aspects like the law-making process and codification in both Civil law and Common law traditions, and the binding effect of case law in the continental legal system.
