Lawyers and the Construction of Transnational Justice examines the people, the conflicts, and the mechanisms involved in producing transnational norms and institutions.

Ordinarily, a clear division is made between business law and public interest law or cause lawyering; but this volume explore the relationships and similarities between transnational developments in both spheres.

Connecting the human rights side of justice with the norms used to regulate market and business, its contributors pursue detailed empirical research that focuses on the complexities, ambiguities and contradictions in the processes, as well as the outcomes, of constructing transnational justice.

Addressing a range of international issues, Lawyers and the Construction of Transnational Justice is a major contribution to the field of sociology of law, as well as to debates about global governance.
