This contribution explores the meaning of ‘global law’ in private law. Private law relationships occur across borders more and more often, but does this also mean that the law governing these relations has become global? It is suggested that in law-making a connection can be made between different levels of regulation (international, national or regional) through the use of normative standards such as the ‘average consumer’ of EU law.
