The aim of the course “Comparative Corporate Law” is to critically discuss and debate the methodology of comparative legal research in corporate law, and in particular to acquire the research skills necessary to do self-conscious comparative legal research. This course examines a selection of company law topics in comparative context, drawing in particular on the laws of the UK, continental Europe (France, Germany) and the United States (in particular, Delaware).The approach taken is both functional and comparative, looking at a series of core problems with which any system of corporate law must deal, and analyzing, from a functional perspective, the solutions adopted by the systems in question.
