Mary Ann Glendon, Comparative Law in the Age of Globalization, 52 Duq. L. Rev. 1 (2014).

Abstract: In this lecture, Professor Glendon discusses the evolution of comparative law in the United States since the American Association of the Comparative Study of Law (now the American Society of Comparative Law) was founded in 1951. The bulk of the lecture is devoted to the Supreme Court's recent references to foreign law in constitutional adjudication and how they illustrate the benefits and risks of comparative law in the judicial process.
