Drawing on sociological research, the article explores the question of "spillover" at national and transnational levels. It asks, in particular, whether both sides of a potential transnational legal order -- the private law side of economic law and corporate law firms on one side, and the world of NGOs and human right on the other -- might develop together (or spillover from one side to another), suggesting that the legitimacy of any potntial transnational legal order depends on some symmetry between the two sides.
