There are so many legal systems in the world. Not only does each country have its own legal systems and specific laws, but there are many legal systems that are not be practiced in any country, such as Jewish law or Hindu law or Buddhist law or Islamist law. Comparative law is when someone goes ahead and studies the differences between all the legal systems in the world and compares them one to each other.
The point of comparative law is simple. By studying the various legal systems in different countries, it is possible to come to a deep understanding of the law. By doing that, it is possible to perfect legal systems and make them better. For example, if you see that one country does things one way and another country does things a much better way, you can go ahead to the first country and make things better, based on the example of the way the second country does it.
