Comparative Law, an old yet largely uncultivated domain has lately, by virtue of growing internationalization, drawn the attention of legal scholars and practitioners. It assesses the similarities and differences in the laws of different countries. Such a study offers insight into foreign legal systems, which can then be blended into one's own legal culture. In view of the significance of the subject and the dearth of substantive literature in India, Comparative Law compiles and presents myriad stances. The chapters are conceptualized and written by revered members of the Indian judiciary, accomplished legal practitioners, erudite academicians and research scholars from India and abroad. They offer a comparative outlook on a wide array of domains such as freedom of expression, sexual offences, food security, prison reforms and prisoners' prerogatives, reproductive rights, right to information, Covid-19 pandemic, intellectual property rights and climate change. The book will be useful for those undertaking comparative research and for those with an appetite for the subject.
