For all of you who have taught Comparative Law, if you would be willing to share your syllabus, I'd be most grateful! I'm slated to teach the course this fall and have elected to use the Glendon et al. casebook, but I'm not entirely satisfied with the coverage. In particular, I've taught Japanese Law in the past and have found it greatly beneficial to my students the discussions the course raised about cultural attitudes toward the rule of law, socio-cultural and religious influences on the law's treatment of minorities, women, family law, separation between church and state, and so on. I don't know that these subjects have been covered in as much depth in the Comparative Law casebooks currently available, so I would welcome all suggestions!!!
