The Center on Law and Globalization

Fall 2009

Researching Law, Vol. 20, No. 4

Changes in technology and communications have minimized constraints of time and geography, resulting in global exchanges of people, information, ideas, products and commerce of unprecedented speed and intensity. Inevitably, law is implicated in the globalization of the increasing interconnectedness of all realms of markets, politics, health, education, migration and military conflict. ABF’s Terence Halliday, John Hagan, and Tom Ginsburg founded The Center on Law and Globalization in 2006 as an initiative to conduct empirical research on law and globalization in its infancy. This edition of Researching Law covers the origin story of the Center and the research conducted thus far.
