9 J. Marshall J. Prac. & Proc. 685 (1976)


The publication of an English translation of a notable decision by a major foreign tribunal' is a fitting occasion on which to discuss the value of comparative constitutional law as a subject of academic study and as a legal discipline of valid current applicability. When referring to comparative constitutional law, I am speaking mainly of case law and most particularly of judicial decisions handed down by national tribunals empowered to review the constitutionality of legislative and executive acts.


Translated by Dr. Arsen Bacic and reprinted in Zbornik Radova Pravnog Fakulteta u Splitu [Journal of the Split Faculty of Law] (1989).
