The study of comparative government for Oxford undergraduates concerns democratic institutions and political methodology. Students are encouraged to engage independently in the study of specific countries, perhaps in anticipation of area studies that they may undertake as options later in their work. The department provides lectures, two classes in the second year and another two classes in the third year in preparation for their final examinations. Unlike other final honour school papers, this one has six tutorials.
I am the Bingham Research Fellow in Constitutional Studies, Balliol College, the Department of Politics and the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford. A political scientist trained in law, I practised law in the United States before moving to Oxford to pursue a career as an academic. My specialization is in constitutional theory and history, particularly church-state relations in the US and the UK.
