A Mixed Legal System in Transition

This chapter focuses on Professor Smith's approach to affinity. This particular view of Smith is chosen because it reveals important details about his approach to comparative analysis; and the main aim of this chapter is to define T B Smith as a comparative lawyer. It begins by highlighting key statements by Smith regarding affinity and connectedness in order to give some idea of what was important to him. It then considers how the things that mattered to him influenced the way in which he used comparative law. Finally, it describes how he fits into the broader world of comparative legal scholarship.
