Abstract

The link between Culture, or cultural factors and Law, Comparative Law in particular, has often been made.The objective of this paper is not to highlight this link once again but to demonstrate that Comparative Law should not only offer an image of law as a cultural phenomenom, it should nowdays become multicultural. My aim is not in other words to discuss how comparative law is more or less remotely about comparing cultures but to argue that comparative legal studies should (also) analyse how legal systems react to the plurality of cultures they are exposed to, whether it be from within or outside national borders. Comparative law today should therefore adopt a multicultural approach, both in the context of research and of teaching. In this paper, I will argue that a multicultural approach to comparative law would not only make the subject more lively and dynamic to teach; it would lead to more nuanced and effectively more accurate analysis in research.
