In Judges, legislators and professors one of the world's foremost legal historians shows how and why continental and common law have come to diverge so sharply. Using ten specific examples he investigates the development of European law, not as the manifestation of certain ideological and intellectual trends, but as largely the result of power struggles between the judiciary, the legislators, and legal scholars, each representing certain political and social ambitions. Now available in paperback, Judges, legislators and professors provides an historical introduction to continental law which is readily accessible to readers familiar with the common law tradition and vice-versa.

Review:

'In Judges, Legislators and Professors Professor Raoul van Caenegem, a Belgian scholar who for many years has brought his knowledge of European legal history to some of the most intractable problems of early Common Law, sets out many instances where English law stands apart from the mainstream of western legal culture ... van Caenegem sees the distinctions as the result of essentially political developments which have meant that, at the critical moment in a country's legal history when a national law took shape, either judges or legislators or jurists were the dominant forces in that process.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'This book brings fascinating insights into an area of law that has often been written about. His clear and lucid style makes the book a pleasure to read ... definitely recommended to all who are interested in legal history, comparative law or the legal system in general.' Malaya Law Review

Book Description:

Professor van Caenegem shows how and why continental and common law diverge so sharply and reveals the significance of power struggles between the judiciary, legislators and legal scholars. An historical introduction to continental law readily accessible to readers familiar with common law and vice versa.
