It is often said that the European Communities are unique, that they cannot be fruitfully compared to other institutions, whether international or federal. Certainly, to a common law lawyer they appear to be uniquely civil law creations; their solutions to various problems appear novel to him. Despite differences in approach much is to be learned by comparing or at least contrasting the European approach with that of the common law. Professor Herzog has well illustrated some of the differences in his excellent paper on the Court of Justice.
