Interaction between legal systems

Interaction between Legal Systems acknowledges that law-making and law enforcement are increasingly taking place on various levels: in a global context, in EU context, on a national level and in a private law framework. These levels influence each other, sometimes directly, on the basis of a hierarchical relation, but often indirectly, for example through the development of trade customs or through an exchange of legal experience or good practices.
