Sytar M. I. Comparative studies in Germany after World War II: Separate aspects

The peculiarities of the development of comparative law studies in Germany after the World War II are traced and determined. The relationship between the development of legal comparative studies in Germany and historical moments in the development of the country as a whole is studied, as well as attention is paid to the moments of institutionalization of comparative studies after the World War II.

The historical component after the World War II is in fact the Renaissance of the development of legal comparative studies in Germany. At the same time, comparative jurisprudence followed the path of tireless institutionalization.

At that time the institutions that supported the National Socialism orientation before the war were restored, as well as new institutions were created, conferences were held, and journals of comparative law studies were published. The period after the World War II actually consolidated the basis for the development of comparative studies, and the institutions created at this time still function today.

Key words: comparative law, comparative studies, institutionalization, Germany, World War II.
