The Challenge of Comparative Civil Procedure


Scott Dodson

2008

Alabama Law Review, Vol. 60, p. 133, 2008

Abstract:     
This Review Essay, solicited by the Alabama Law Review, reviews "Civil Litigation in Comparative Context" (West 2007), by Oscar G. Chase, Helen Hershkoff, Linda Silberman, Yasuhei Taniguchi, Vincenzo Varano, and Adrian Zuckerman. It also identifies some areas of exceptionalist American civil procedure that recently have been converging towards global norms and argues that those convergences, if they continue, could render comparative studies particularly meaningful.
