  • I dedicate this article to the memory of the late David Cavers, Harold Berman, and Arthur von Mehren, whom I was privileged to have as doctorate supervisors on aspects of this topic at the Harvard Law School. I owe particular thanks to Stewart Macaulay for more recent comments, Kunal Sharma and Shu Zhang for their research assistance, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for research support, and the University of New South Wales for a sabbatical to complete this article.
