This article introduces one way in which the private sector makes law- bottom-up transnational lawmaking. While this article explores one example in depth- the Berne Union's regulation of export credit insurance- it concludes that bottom-up lawmaking peppers our legal landscape in a profound and largely unacknowledged way. More specifically, this article discusses how the private sector engages in international lawmaking and contemplates the normative implications of privatized transnational lawmaking.
