About the Authors
  • This tribute to Professor Detlev Vagts of the Harvard Law School brings together his colleagues at Harvard and the American Society of International Law, as well as academics, judges and practitioners, many of them his former students. Their essays span the entire spectrum of modern transnational law: international law in general; transnational economic law; and transnational lawyering and dispute resolution. The contributors evaluate established fields of transnational law, such as the protection of property and investment, and explore new areas of law which are in the process of detaching themselves from the nation-state such as global administrative law and the regulation of cross-border lawyering. The implications of decentralised norm-making, the proliferation of dispute settlement mechanisms and the rising backlash against global legal interdependence in the form of demands for preserving state legal autonomy are also examined.

    • The chapters share a unifying theme that is timely and relevant across the international economic law field
    • Readers interested in the tension between IEL obligations and national autonomy will be able to examine this issue through a diverse set of approaches
    • Contributors address the core theme from a broad range of international economic law foci, including the major IEL areas of WTO law, investment law, and financial/monetary law
    • Readers interested primarily in a specific area of IEL will find multiple chapters relevant to each particular area
