This chapter aims at highlighting the relevance of Jessup’s analysis based on the example of international arbitration. In this chapter, I will use the example of international arbitration to contextualize the notion of transnational law and its potential relevance as an analytical tool. I will do so by intertwining two analyses. I will consider, on the one hand, the ways in which international arbitration was a source of inspiration for Jessup when elaborating the notion of transnational law. On the other hand, I will consider how the notion of transnational law constitutes a relevant tool for the analysis of international arbitration and its subsequent developments. Jessup,who was not only an academic but also, first and foremost, a practitioner of international relations, demonstrated the necessity of establishing such a dialogue between theory and practice.
