Abstract

The goal of this Practitioners' Guide is to provide an overview of both common law and civil law legal traditions -- comparing and contrasting them -- so that practitioners deploying to post-conflict or developing countries can become familiar with them, and more easily work in a country that follows a tradition that is unfamiliar to them.
