The New Haven School of Jurisprudence: A Universal Toolkit for Understanding and Shaping the Law
Asia Pacific Law Review
The New Haven School of Jurisprudence offers a rich framework of interdisciplinary analysis of societal problems and a heuristic for inventing policy alternatives and recommending solutions that apply across cultures, throughout the planet, and over time. This lecture demonstrates the usefulness of this approach at the dawn of the 21st century, discussing the idea of ‘hegemonic international law’ and addressing discrete issues in the fields of international trade and investment as well as regulation of the global commons.
