Teaching private law in the 21st century is fascinating. Adapting traditional private law subjects like contracts to a global context and to contemporary examples is both challenging and rewarding, particularly those related to our digital reality. Comparative law is a great way to help students think outside geographical borders with respect to applicable law and jurisdiction.

Students are encouraged to discover the rationale behind current laws, search for what lies behind the differences among the various jurisdictions and think about whether and when is legal diversity preferable to homogeneity. This proves particularly useful when we move to the digital context in which jurisdictional borders are especially challenged.
