The comparative tort law chapters feature the case law and jurisprudence of various countries, including Ghana, Costa Rica, France, and Japan, and include topics such as verbal insults, governmental liability, products liability, and privacy, among others.

This casebook emphasizes primary materials (statutes, European Union directives, regulations, guidelines, and cases) that have been edited to facilitate classroom discussion. Topics include what employers are covered, including extraterritorial application; protected classes in Europe, Asia, South Africa and Mexico; types of unlawful discrimination; and remedies and enforcement mechanisms. The primary material is enhanced by brief notes and questions. The book can supplement a domestic-only employment discrimination law course, or serve as the basis of a stand-alone seminar, to advance the students' understanding of their own system and the kinds of issues they will face in an era of globalization.

This book is designed primarily to serve as a supplement allowing professors teaching corporate law courses in law schools in the United States to introduce their students to corporate laws outside of the United States. By doing so, this book seeks to familiarize students with laws governing the foreign companies US attorneys may increasingly need to deal with in a global economy, to clarify United States corporate law by examining how other systems address the same concerns, to challenge students’ unquestioning assumption that the law du jour in the United States is, by definition, the best law, and to predict the direction of United States corporate law in the future given our history of borrowing from foreign corporate laws in the past. Subjects covered include taxonomy of business forms, choice of corporate law, creditor protection, corporate governance, mismanagement, insider trading, and takeovers.
