[extract] In this tribute I want to discuss the impact of research on Asian Law on the field of comparative law, and highlight some of the methodological challenges that have emerged. I then want to draw attention to the latest development in the evolution: the emergence of Asian scholars who are seriously working on each other’s legal systems for the first time. The first version of this essay was presented at a Seminar at Kyushu University, Japan, in November 2002, at which scholars from Bangladesh, the PRC, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam discussed the future of comparative Asian legal studies in Asia itself. The seed sown by Mary and David and nurtured over the last three decades continues to grow.
