Bringing the technical into the socio-legal

the metaphors of law and legal scholarship of a 21st century European Union

Abstract

The narrative form - particularly as an origin story and 9folk) history - remains a potent constitutive mechanism for creating and sustaining communities, including legal communities. There is a way to tell the story of EU law or the roles of law in EU integration that begins from a faith in law in the 1950s, turns away from law (to governance) in the 1990s, and, after 2008, either returns to law, or even hyper-legalism, or, in the alternative, eschews law as a means to solve Europe's problems. This tory may even be the 'received wisdom' as to EU law's foundations and development. It is at least a recognized dominant narrative. It is a narrative of both EU law and the study of EU law.
