About TLB

  • Philip Jessup proposed the idea of a transnational law course. His vision of the subject was broad, including public and private international law; state and non-state actors; business, administrative, and political affairs; as well as negotiation and litigation. Inspired by his idea, TLB is only constrained by its pursuit to address all law transcending national frontiers.

This does seem blatantly and scandalously regressive: A Vitoria, Grotius, or Vattel would have that much less public space outside the academy to put their talents to work and spread their knowledge of law as it has been, is, and might otherwise be. Was not the General Assembly empowered by the UN Charter to "initiate studies and make recommendations for the purpose of promoting international cooperation in the political field and encouraging the progressive development of international law and its codification"?

Layperson's question: Does the Act for Special Procedures play a role similar or analogous to that played by a Special Master in our municipal legal system?

And thanks for the link to the petition.
