CompareLex is an online encyclopedia on comparative and foreign law.
Here, anyone with an interest in comparative law topics will find in-depth, well-researched articles written by me exclusively for this site. I am convinced that any lawyer should have some knowledge of comparative law theory and methodology.
No matter if you are a
- student looking for a brief introduction to comparative law,
- an academic looking for a refreshing look at comparative law methodology, or
- a practitioner looking for some help with comparative law application
you have come to the right place!
I have been a truly comparative lawyer for a good twenty years by now. During my legal education I obtained law degrees from not just one or two, but three countries – Germany, France and the United States. My transnational training provided me with valuable insights into various legal cultures, different approaches to law and distinct ways of legal writing and communitcation. I have published my research on comparative law issues in several distinguished law journals as well as online on CompareLex. With the inception of this website, my mission has been to make comparative law more accessible, transparent and known.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or requests for expert review of books or articles on comparative law.
Lastly, here are some insights on me as a person. Recently, I have been described as
“someone who plans out everything, loves to write and eats lots of chocolate!”(my oldest daughter)
That pretty much says it all … though here is a list of ten more or less random things about me:
- I prefer to be called Anita (though Ms. Frohlich is fine too)
- We dropped the “Umlaut” in our last name when we moved to the United States.
- I was born in Germany, lived in France for a while and then moved to the United States in 2005.
- I recently started playing the cello.
- I am homeschooling my four kids.
- I love teaching.
- I love learning.
- I love languages.
- But I do also love math.
- I like bringing things together.
