UT Austin Studies in Foreign and Transnational Law


About the Series

The UT Studies in Foreign and Transnational Law series aims to publish books covering various aspects of foreign, private, criminal and public law, as well as transnational law. The broad ambition of the series underlines the editors' belief that in a shrinking world there is a growing need to expand our knowledge of other legal orders  (national or supernational) and to publish books discussing comparative methodology and not merely describe foreign systems.
