With the scope of legal regulation no longer limited to national territories, there is a need for a framework that recognises law as a global phenomenon with fluid boundaries. Legal orders within, between and above a nation’s domestic legal system create global issues that impact upon individuals and the choices available to legislators and decision-makers.

We will delve into the nature of international law, supranational law, comparative law, domestic law and legal pluralism, and examines where they interconnect and conflict. Recent events in the UK and the US illustrate the importance of these issues.
