This paper challenges the notion of external limits of the law. Legal systems may have their own narrative of autonomy and independence, that eventually implies an absence of hard limits; there are, however, other narratives that law itself can acknowledge, and the limits of law can therefore dwell in such an acknowledgement. The limits of law, from this point of view, are neither reassuring borders, nor protective walls - they are a conjured up by a pluralism of narratives implied in such practices like conscientious objection or civil disobedience.
