This class will consider civil litigation from a comparative perspective. It will focus in particular on mechanisms for group litigation (such as the class action) as currently deployed in different countries and in diverse substantive arenas, from consumer protection to securities fraud to the enforcement of human rights. Through our exploration of these mechanisms and associated procedural rules, we will discuss some of the core issues in comparative law: for instance, the impact of legal traditions and legal culture; the political determinants of law reform; and prospects for legal harmonization.
