The increasing convergence of law, particularly private and commercial law in the Western
legal systems is among the most debated issues in comparative law studies. This paper
analyzes legal integration of private (and commercial) law in the U.S. and in the EU
legal systems, and aims at comparing – in a nutshell – actors, methods, strategies and
outcomes of this phenomenon in the two different institutional settings. Legal integration
initiatives are part of a coherent plan to support economic transactions with a legal
structure that encourages enterprise and reduces costs. The motivation for these changes
is economic, but the engine driving legal integration is essentially political and cultural,
and therefore is closely linked to the institutional setting and the legal tradition(s) in
which legal integration takes place.
