In this unique book, leading legal scholars and philosophers provide a breadth of perspectives and inspire stimulating debate around the transformations of jurisprudence in a globalized world. Traditionally the central debates surrounding jurisprudence and legal theory are concerned with the elucidation of the particularities of state-law. This innovative book considers that this orthodox picture may no longer be tenable, given the increasing standardization of technologies, systems and information worldwide.

Split across four thematic parts, this timely book provides a broad overview of the topic, followed by in depth analyses investigating the 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. Chapters cover legal encounters with alterity in a post-monist mode, normative legal pluralism, relating law and power in a historical global context, cosmopolitan legitimacy and human rights and dignity in a corporate world.

Jurisprudence in a Globalized World will be a key resource for students and scholars working in global transnational law, public international law and legal theory and philosophy.
Critical Acclaim
‘Erudite, careful and wide-ranging, the essays in Jurisprudence in a Globalized World refresh and extend the repertoires of globalized legal thought. Spurred on by the extraordinary generosity of William Twining’s jurisprudence, the urgency of this book is shaped by a desire to find new methods and arguments adequate to the task of establishing legitimate forms of global ordering – not as a political and juridical apology but as mode of enquiry and experimentation. As a result, many components of the established scholarly domains of legal theory and comparative and private international law have been transformed. Collectively this book marks a major contribution to the tradition, time, and place of jurisprudence.’
– Shaun McVeigh, The University of Melbourne, Australia

‘The globalization of law remains the biggest challenge for jurisprudence – our notion and understanding of law, law’s unity, interactions between legal orders, global justice, and so on. Jorge Luis Fabra-Zamora has assembled a fabulous set of leading scholars from around the world to address these challenges. The result is a treasure box, which has something to offer for everyone interested in global jurisprudence. A delight!’
– Ralf Michaels, Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law, Hamburg, Germany
