Comparative legal inquiry permeates the Harvard curriculum, ranging from courses focused on other nations to the inclusion of comparative issues in courses on U.S. law to a robust co-curricular program. Its goals include acquainting students with the approaches that other societies take toward the resolution of challenging societal issues and facilitating understanding of the assumptions and choices that inform law in the United States.
