About the Series

UT Austin Studies in Foreign and Transnational Law

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 go beyond describing foreign systems; to expand our knowledge of other legal orders  (national or supernational) and to publish books discussing comparative methodology.
