Jurisprudence in a Globalized World

Edited by Jorge L. Fabra-Zamora

Leading legal scholars and philosophers provide a breadth of perspectives and inspire stimulating debate around the transformations of jurisprudence in a globalized world. This innovative book considers modifications to jurisprudence’s methodological approaches driven by globalization, the concepts and theoretical tools required to account for putative new forms of legal phenomena, and normative issues relating to the legitimacy and democratic character of these legal orders.

Chapter 7: Globalisation and the concept of legal order

Hans Lindahl


There is widespread agreement that globalisation processes raise significant challenges to the concepts of law which take their point of departure in the state as the paradigm manifestation of law. There is little or no agreement about what a concept of law could look like that is general, by dint of accommodating a wide range of putative legal orders, including emergent global legal orders, and that is flexible, by virtue of its capacity to identify significant structural differences between different kinds of legal orders. The aim of this chapter is to sketch out the broad contours of a concept of legal order that, hopefully, could meet these two desiderata.
