A strain of law has emerged since the mid-1960s which asserts a global reach and jurisdiction beyond any international or transnational remit. Intimations of Global Law identifies this new strain in diverse areas of the law, and explores how its development might influence the nature of our legal-ethical horizons.

Intimations of Global Law Summary

Intimations of Global Law by Neil Walker (University of Edinburgh)

A strain of law reaching beyond any bounded international or transnational remit to assert a global jurisdiction has recently acquired a new prominence. Intimations of Global Law detects this strain in structures of international law claiming a planetary scope independent of state consent, in new threads of global constitutional law, administrative law and human rights, and in revived notions of ius gentium and the global rule of law. It is also visible in the legal pursuit of functionally differentiated global public goods, general conflict rules, norms of 'legal pluralism' and new legal hybrids such as the global law of peace and humanity law. The coming of global law affects how law manifests itself in a global age and alters the shape of our legal-ethical horizons. Global law presents a diverse, unsettled and sometimes conflicted legal category, and one which challenges our very understanding of the rudiments of legal authority.
