The Berlin Law and Society Institute (LSI) is the Humboldt University's centre for interdisciplinary socio-legal studies.

Casebook Comparative Constitutionalism 2004 & 2010 & 2016

Prof. Baer is co-author of this innovative law school casebook with Norman Dorsen (NYU), Michel Rosenfeld (Cardozo) and Andras Sajo (CEU Budapest). The book examines how the vast increase in international movements of people, capital, goods, ideas and information affect commercial relationships and the development of human rights. It contains examples from countries in all continents, examining the assumptions, choices, trade-offs and values that have formed the foundations of individual legal systems. Examples also illustrate how other constitutional democracies address similar problems, and illuminate different theories of constitutionalism as they have evolved in many types of legal systems. The work seeks to help students comprehend the nature and problems of regional and international institutions and adjudicatory bodies.

The third edition of the Casebook was published in July 2016.
