What is transnational law and why should we teach it?
This book offers a broad range of perspectives on transnational legal education from law professors in the global north and south, including North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. It provides a transnational perspective on the development of law in civil, common, and now transnational law systems on such issues as judicial review, international financial standards, transnational insolvency, personal property, citizenship, constitutionalism, human rights and humanitarian law, plural systems of regulation, language policy, and jurisprudence. And it considers how and why to teach transnational law.
The essays in this collection arise from the first four years of teaching and research at the Centre for Transnational Legal Studies in London, an innovative institution that brings together professors and students from around the world to examine law in ways that transcend jurisdictional limitations and that focuses on both private and public law and how these categories are becoming hybridized in a world of increased globalization and pluralisation of law.
