Abstract

Comparative international legal studies are on the rise. One of the reasons for this phenomenon is the contemporary ascendancy of comparative constitutional law. A second contemporary source for the rise of comparative international law is the increasing appeal of comparative regional legal studies. A third related source for the contemporary rise of comparative international law is the on-going scholarly paradigm shift in the study of law that reflects the impact of globalization on the social sciences within which legal studies themselves find their conceptual place. The seemingly ineluctable rise of comparative international law as an academic subject in the twenty-first century makes advisable to review the “scattered, terse even cryptic” recent references one can find in today’s literature about this hitherto little used term among which features interestingly The Case for Comparative International Law by Martti Koskenniemi.
