Forthcoming Issue: Vol 3, No 2 (fall 2016)

Guest edited by Norman Spaulding (Stanford, Law) the special issue on Regime Change: Orders of Law and Legal Transition will explore how and on what terms legal systems and regimes of legal thought and regulation change. How are the uncertainties and contingencies of these changes experienced both by legal authorities and legal subjects? What ultimately secures or undermines the legitimacy of these changes? And how are these changes shaped and sometimes undone by the various forms of resistance they provoke? The purpose of the issue is to feature interdisciplinary scholarship (with and emphasis on legal and political theory, and/or legal history) that critically examines a specific moment of constitutive legal change. The change may be revolutionary, constitutional, or a more narrow but fundamental transition within a specific legal order or domain of legal regulation or jurisprudence.
