In more formal terms, The American Society of Comparative Law, Inc. (originally incorporated as the American Association for the Comparative Study of Law, Inc.), is an organization of institutional and individual members devoted to study, research, and write on foreign and comparative law as well as private international law. The ASCL’s purposes, as set forth in 1951 in its original certificate of incorporation, are “to promote the comparative study of law and the understanding of foreign legal systems; to establish, maintain and publish without a profit a comparative law journal; and to provide for research and the publication without profit of writings, books, papers and pamphlets relating to comparative, foreign or private international law.” A nonprofit corporation, the ASCL welcomes gifts for any of its purposes, including support of The American Journal of Comparative Law.
