Abstract

Traditionally, the major way to teach/study law has been using a doctrinal approach. It focuses on complex legal issues or problems and relies on interpretation and application of the law using legal precedent, law sources and the work of other academics, etc. In the era of globalization, an innovation of legal education is incorporating a comparative approach. This approach analyses how different legal systems and jurisdictions have dealt with a particular problem. This short article aims to explore the expectations of different stakeholders amid the globalization of legal education and some theoretical issues concerning a comparative and functional approach to corporate law teaching, predominantly from the perspectives of a practitioner in the UK higher education establishment.

Keywords: comparative law, corporate law, legal education
