Through comparative law, people can understand not just their own legal system but those of other countries. Comparative law is a century old study that compares the legal systems of different countries. This is helpful, especially in today’s society, because it helps people when doing business in other countries. When you do business in other countries you have to know the law and what is legal and illegal. It can also be used as a tool to help the harmonization of laws. Comparative law is an important thing to understand for anyone involved in other foreign relations or business with other countries in any capacity.
