Asians and Lawmaking

This course delves into laws, lawmaking, and the politico-legal systems of selected Asian countries. It examines a sampling of Asian states in the context of their historical and traditional heritage vis-a-vis the sweeping changes that are driven by globalization and democratization. The organization and administration of the courts and judicial system in each country will be discussed. Comparative analysis will be made with the United States and Asian American legal issues.
