englischThe book is not only a useful reference for foreign legal practitioners, but also includes an extremely interesting theory of comparison. It revisits the notion of “foreign law” and elaborates a method to allow foreign lawyers to understand and overcome the gaps between legal cultures.

Numerous examples, concrete practical tips and checklists as well as the translation of all important legal terms into German and French offer ideal orientation. Each chapter includes “practice tips,” which serve the aim of guiding non-U.S. lawyers in their first steps into practising U.S. law.
