Abstract

This article identifies significant points of contact between the scholarship on comparative law and on global law, and discusses how they can provide the building blocks for embedding more explicitly comparative legal methods into the growing scholarly debate on global environmental law. To set the terms for a more systematic debate, the article focuses, in turn, on the evolving understanding of the nature and scope of comparative law as a discipline, its different functions in the context of current global environmental law practice, and the variety of comparative legal methodologies, including interdisciplinary ones, that appear of relevance for global environmental lawyers. On these bases, the article concludes by reflecting on the nature of global environmental law and the role of global environmental lawyers.
