Abstract:

This article introduces a symposium in Transnational Legal Theory on Brian Simpson's posthumously published book, Reflections on 'The Concept of Law' (2011), in which Simpson considers the historical and intellectual context in which HLA Hart's famous book was published, and critiques its methodology and substantive argument. The article presents a sketch of those aspects of Simpson's life and intellectual development that help to situate the contributions made to the Symposium.

More about this publication?
  • Transnational Legal Theory publishes high-quality theoretical scholarship that addresses transnational dimensions of law and legal dimensions of transnational activity. It explores how transnational forces and ideations affect debates within existing traditions or schools of legal thought. Similarly, the journal debates general theories about law in light of transnational contexts.

    It also explores fresh understandings of international and comparative law. The journal has a special interest in the intersections of public international law, private international law and comparative law. Other areas of interest include the interaction of systems or orders along such axes as: constitutional law theory on the reception of various forms of external law by states' legal orders; jurisdictional theory on the external projection of states' legal orders; public law theory on the evolution of regional legal orders; panstate religious normativity; and the theorization of law as global.
