The world is subject to constant change, much of it triggered by the all-encompassing process of globalisation. Globalisation affects societies and, with that, the way in which legal systems function and interact. One of the functions of law is to moderate certain forces of society and to provide levels of predictability and certainty. That seems more needed than ever now that many of us – citizens, governments, private enterprises alike – are sailing on an ocean that is much bigger and more complex than the large lakes we travelled just a few decades ago. There are more opportunities – you can move from Amsterdam to China in a few microseconds via the Internet – but there are also new risks, complexities, and interdependencies which can knock you off course. In such a world, thinking about the future of law (including, what role it can/should play) and the law of the future (what form it
might/should take) is not a luxury – it is a necessity.
