Abstract

If you want to understand your own language, learn a foreign tongue. Similarly, if you want to understand the American system of government, learn what our intellectual kin — Great Britain and Canada — have done. As Professor F.H. Buckley notes, "He who knows only his own country knows little enough of that." He is one of the few people who has thoroughly mastered the legal structure and history of all three countries.

Keywords: Legal History, Comparative Law, English Law, Canadian Law, Comparative Constitutional Law
