Comparative Law Committee
The Comparative Law Committee (CLC) is one of the core committees of the ILS. The CLC was established in 2006 as the European Focus Group and was renamed in 2013.
Over the past ten years, the CLC has held countless comparative law seminars and cross border conferences, including a conference in Berlin held jointly with Humboldt University.
The primary purpose of the CLC is to:
(a) enhance the understanding between the Australian legal system and other legal systems, predominantly those in Europe and Asia, and discuss common and civil law differences;
(b) connect and create ties between practitioners across different jurisdictions, including Australian lawyers working abroad (through the ILS Chapters);
(c) contribute to the legal education of Australian lawyers.
