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.

Thanks for the notice and the links.

Just one very small quibble: I think it's better to identify the person making the argument at (in this case) Balkinization and Opinio Juris, hence, 'At Balkinization, Marty Lederman argues...' and 'At Opinio Juris, Peter Spiro argues...'. It really is not a 'they,' as the bloggers at the respective blogs don't always agree with each other. (Although there is of course an editorial and royal 'we,' that doesn't apply here, as you're using the third person personal pronoun.)

Have mercy on me, Patrick, I'm in finals and doing the best I can to even post something. Feinstein's proposal is something I'd really like to sink my teeth into but unfortunately I just don't have the time right now. I assume that by the time I'm done with finals some of the "pros" will have produced detailed critiques of the proposed legislation, and I will put together a post based on their work. When I do, I promise to include the names of the authors, which I usually do when I'm really doing a serious analysis. Thanks for checking in, and I appreciated you backing me up in the comments on Ethan Leib's post at Prawfs Blawg about making international law a first year course.

I thought calling it a 'very small quibble' was a sign of mercy! All the best with finals.
