This chapter argues how the problems of continuity and identity, declared unsolved by Raz, are fundamentally altered. The old conceptions of the problems are thoroughly state-, official-, system-, and hierarchy-based, and as such are of limited value in facing both old and new challenges to explanation of the existence and borders of legality. A new way of understanding these old problems is proposed, re-characterizing them in terms more suited to the goals of general jurisprudence in facing a much broader range of phenomena than before. The chapter also identifies some of the next challenges an inter-institutional view faces.
