Show Summary Details


There are many ways to theorize transnational law. As always, there is a mainstream, and there are side streams. However, it may be more interesting to consider from which direction such theories develop. This chapter considers three directions in transnational legal studies: theorizing from above; theorizing from below; and theorizing from inside. Much of each of these theories can be found in the German Law Journal.
