Abstract International bank regulation has ramped to prominence over the past two decades, as nations and the global economy have lurched from one financial crisis to another. The authors have all confronted these challenges of internationalisation through their extensive knowledge and experience in civil law, common law and mixed jurisdictions around the globe. Their analysis of the implications for researchers and teachers, as well as practitioners, law-makers and reformers is original and their different proposals for dealing with the challenges are both practical and at times, radical. The utility of the book is enhanced by the fact that it is written from a variety of different and critical perspectives. In their preface, the editors provide a cogent overarching theme for the work: Whereas the emphasis and content of global law will continue to vary, the trend is clearly toward greater recognition of the necessity and value of an international perspective, both technical and cultural, in the law graduate of the future.

Law, on the other hand, is very different, and at least until recently, a person who studied law in one country was limited in his or her future practice location to that particular place.
