Example text

The policies informing this internationalised and ‘transnationalised’ world order became explicit and formative components of this enlarged conception of law. The concept of the ‘transnational’, as developed by Vagts and similarminded scholars, embodies three significant elements of change. First, matters that ‘transcend’ national frontiers can reach deeply into (or indeed be first formulated deeply within) national legal systems, and in this sense depart significantly from the earlier discrete categories of international and national law.

The term ‘transnational’ emerged as a winner. Such was the period of Detlev Vagts’ university education, military service and brief but instructive career as a practising lawyer involved with international corporate and financial transactions, all a prelude to his almost fifty years of professorial engagement with this new and volatile world. Much of Detlev’s teaching and scholarship fell comfortably within the developing idea or category of the transnational. His work transcended the boundaries of any one of the component fields included in the concept of transnational law.

As if to bear out that observation, the table of contents included: distinctive aspects of transnational lawyering; different forms of dispute resolution; international financial and trade institutions; typical corporate agreements for transnational operations such as licensing of distributorship arrangements; joint ventures; distinctive aspects of corporate actors within transnational business environments; and bodies of law including national and international law (each of which were said to penetrate and influence the other) and public and private law.
