The first multinational report to be published on the Law Library’s website in 2016 allows us to consider some fundamental questions underlying the practice of comparative law: who makes the laws, and how are the laws made?
The report covers eleven jurisdictions with different legal and constitutional traditions and systems of government.
For each of these countries our legal specialists looked at the constitutional status and role of the national parliament, its location, its structure and composition (including how many houses it has and how many members), some of the key leadership positions within the parliament, how members are elected, and the lawmaking process.
