This important research review examines the most significant and instructive articles relating to comparative law methodology. They offer vast and comprehensive coverage of practices, principles, methods and sources in comparative legal research. The first section deals with preliminary considerations such as the aims of research and the questions one should ask, as well as how to select objects for comparison and formulate a research plan.
