Chapter Summary

This chapter takes as its point of departure the truism that 'the global' is omnipresent. One should first unravel and then try to understand the DNA of one's common legal heritage. This captures the justification for and general direction of the global law project. Although the global law project obviously cannot exist in isolation from these disciplines, and indeed is to build on it, it makes a discrete, fundamental and original contribution to legal scholarship and legal education. Countless other intriguing examples of possible future global law research of European Union (EU) law spring to mind. Frequently, such examples involve seemingly absolute rules which, upon closer inspection, do not stand up to scrutiny. By querying the absoluteness of rules, the global law project is thereby set to shake legal orders at their foundations.

Keywords: European Union (EU) law; global law project; global law research; legal education; legal heritage; legal scholarship
