Comparative legal studies - methodological aspects
Part of the PhD Researcher Series
The overall aim of this seminar series is to enhance competence in European integration studies with a socio-legal theme.
Speaker: Professor Dagmar Schiek
Comparative studies are used in a wide variety of PhD and other legal research projects. If addressing an EU theme, it is nearly impossible to avoid a comparative approach, as EU policies or legal concepts impact differently in different Member States. Also, most EU legislation and even case law originates from a limited number of Member States.
Consequently, it is impossible to comprehend these without considering national law. Comparative law is thus a fascinating, but also complex subject which must be approached in interdisciplinary ways.
The seminar gives an overview of different approaches and provides examples on how comparative legal studies can inform a PhD throughout.
