A Proposal For 'Philosophical Method' In Comparative And International Law, John Martin Gillroy Oct 2009

A Proposal For 'Philosophical Method' In Comparative And International Law, John Martin Gillroy

Pace International Law Review Online Companion

A basic challenge of contemporary thought is to better understand the origin, persistence, and future course of international/ comparative law.

It is fair to say that a majority of us have either seen or been exposed to the hit television show To Catch a Predator on NBC.

The show is important because those caught by the investigators oftentimes raise the entrapment defense, but to no avail. Given the emergence of internet sting operations and covert government investigations, it is now more important than ever that the ...
