Abstract

In this essay, I revisit the public/private divide in order to explore more fully the potential for private production of law in global exchange and also to clarify what I think are differences in the way common law and civil legal scholars think about the public and the private in law.

Keywords: private legal systems, globalization, international trade, common law, civil code
