It’s the law! But is it law? Ha, that’s the question. And that question matters

The first chapter of my book Transnational Legality: Stateless Law and International Arbitration is now accessible for free on SSRN, here. Courtesy of Oxford University Press. It’s called Why Being Law Matters.

Lawyers should love it: it tells us that law matters, that it matters to call something law. Oh, how important us lawyers are – didn’t you know?

It’s a strange world, this chapter. There lives Franz Kafka; football is debated; computer code sits next to the French Revolution of 1789; and Emile Zola has to listen to statistics on how many books Oxford University Press publishes on international law. And all of it is transnational.  

I had good fun writing it (as you can tell). I hope you might chuckle a bit reading it.
