The course will illustrate the globalization of some areas of law through the analysis of leading cases decided by national, international and supranational courts. The course will begin with an overview of the legal globalization phenomenon and then move on to an analysis of its influence in different areas. The chosen areas can be distinguished into two types: areas in which the movement towards globalization is more or less obvious – like Corporate Law and Humanitarian Law – and areas that are traditionally perceived as being the realm of sovereignty – like Administrative Law. The goal of the course will be to unveil the common thread running through these areas.
