The paper examines the possibility of, and uses of, legal inconsistencies during the emergence of states. Sometimes, this form of legal pluralism is used to create the space in which new constitutional orders can develop. Particular attention is paid to the European constitutional order, the Australian constitution, and to Hong Kong's relationship with mainland China.
