Abstract

In this paper I argue that a transnational (as opposed to state-centric) perspective on legal development is essential (conceptually, empirically and normatively) both for practitioners, and for those who seek to understand and critique them; that it is best conceptualised with sociological imagination; and that it opens the door to the rehabilitation of the field of legal development into a more nimble and productive space for empirically-informed experimentation.

Keywords: law and development, legal development, legal experimentation, legal innovation
