This course will look at the development of the common law across the English-speaking world and how it has grown up differently from German or French law. We shall consider particularly the six ‘core subjects:’ Crime, Tort, Contract, Equity, Constitutional Law and Land. We shall however also spend a good deal of time on the task of explaining German law in English, concentrating on those areas of law with which students are familiar in their German law courses.
