Markesinis on System Builders and Problem Solvers

Sir Basil Markesinis has just published a comparative study in the classical mould of the differences between the English and the French legal systems in the Texas International Law Journal. The author argues that the role played by practicioners in the two systems makes up for some of the most interesting and significant differences (in the vein of professor Ugo Mattei's theory, it would seem). Very useful as an overview of broad historical developments (with a wealth of references) and current tendencies.
