Description
‘This stimulating volume of essays seamlessly integrates theoretical and practical perspectives to wrestle with fundamental issues of law and legal education in the 21st century. Using an integrated framework, the editors demonstrate that the challenges raised by internationalization can no longer be left to a small group of comparative and international lawyers, but rather require fundamental engagement from everyone in the law. Highly recommended.’
– Tom Ginsburg, University of Chicago Law School, US

‘This is a rich and fascinating collection of essays on the internationalisation of law. It offers an important exploration of what lies ahead in making law, resolving disputes and researching and teaching law in an increasingly globalising world. Academics and practitioners all over the world will find this book immensely useful.’
– Jan M. Smits, Maastricht University, The Netherlands

‘This fascinating collection of essays marks the 20th anniversary of Bond Law School in Australia. The essays deal with the internationalisation of law in all its dimensions, whether it be in law teaching, legal research, legislation or attitudes to risk and regulation which is particularly pertinent in view of the global financial crisis. The breadth of coverage of the book increases its appeal to scholars and policy makers from a range of sub-disciplinary perspectives. It deserves to be read widely and is an extremely valuable addition to any practitioner or academic library.’
– Gerard McCormack, University of Leeds, UK

This insightful book explores the acute challenges presented by the ‘internationalisation’ of law, a trend that has been accelerated by the growing requirement for academics and practitioners to work and research across countries and regions with differing legal traditions.

The authors have all confronted these challenges of internationalisation through their extensive knowledge and experience in civil law, common law and mixed jurisdictions around the globe. Their analysis of the implications for researchers and teachers, as well as practitioners, law-makers and reformers is original and their different proposals for dealing with the challenges are both practical and at times, radical.

This book is a must-read for those exposed to the internationalisation of law, be they academics, cross border practitioners, judges, arbitrators, or those engaged in legal reform and policy.
