The Common Law Advantage for Obtaining Foreign Capital in Developing Countries
Featuring Dr. Joseph Stats, J.D., Ph.D., Department of Political Science, University of Minnesota Duluth
Location: Hamline Law Moot Courtroom
Available via live webcast.
This lecture looks at the advantages that countries with common law systems have in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) and other forms of capital investment. Using analysis of data obtained for 114 developing countries from 1970 to 2007, Dr. Stats will discuss how common law systems are more inclined than civil law systems to promote the rule of law and protect property rights and can be understood to provide more efficiency in the law, better contract enforcement, more judicial autonomy, and more market-oriented regulations.
Credit: One standard CLE credit has been requested.
