Comparative law is the study of different legal systems all over the world in not only democratic societies, but also within societies with a monarchy in not only the past, but also in the present as well as societies that have experienced dictatorships. The goal of this growing field of study is to analyze the different legal systems that come from all over the world and to specifically analyze what legal systems work and what legal systems do not work as well as to analyze why. Comparative law is an industry field of study due to the fact that government laws are not only examined. In addition to government laws, other laws that are rooted to culture as well as to religion are also examined. Those who study comparative law are fascinated with ancient laws that are rooted to religion and that have continued to influence many laws in present day.
