About Larry Cata Backer

Welcome to my Selected Works site. My work is focused on issues of globalization. In particular I am interested in the ways in which new regulatory forms are taking shape as states begin to engage in activities once typically reserved to individuals and entities start to undertake responsibilities once associated with the state. When states act as market participants and multinational enterprises act like governments, the shape of public and private law is bound to change. The consequence is the emergence of law that explodes the old field boundaries that once separated public and private law as well as constitutional, enterprise and international law.
