Overview
This new volume contains fourteen national reports and a General Report on the use of comparative law by courts, which were presented at the XIVth International Congress of Comparative Law in Athens. It provides a general survey of the frequency and methods of a comparative recourse to foreign law by courts, describing both the methods of such recourse and the typical fields in which it is undertaken.

The reports offer an interesting cross-section of contemporary court practice from a wide variety of countries around the world – large and small, unitary and federal, and with differing historical backgrounds. All demonstrate the needs of national courts to look to foreign law for inspiration or as a model for dealing with new, unsettled issues of national law, and the reports illustrate well the impact of divergent traditions, attitudes and surrounding circumstances.

Of special interest are both the role of comparative law and the comparative method employed in the practice of a supranational court, such as the European Court of Justice.

In addition to the General Report, this volume contains national reports from the following countries: Canada, European Union, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and United States of America.
