Legal Origin Theory

  • Elgar Research Reviews in Law

Simon Deakin and Katharina Pistor

In this research review, Professor Deakin and Professor Pistor include those key articles which highlight the major contributions to, but also the inherent limits of, the legal origin literature. They consider the merits of this approach in the context of three fields of inquiry: the study of comparative law; the analysis of the relation between law and markets; and the understanding of the role of legal systems in social ordering.
