LAW422 Cultural Legal Studies

This course examines the way in which law acts upon, is expressed through, and is constituted by cultural texts, artefacts and spaces. You will learn how legal theory is understood and experienced beyond the confines of legal institutions by investigating the way in which various images of law circulating in popular culture (novels, art, movies, television series, comics, video games) depict, critique and distort the legal process, lawyers and jurisprudence. You will explore a series of sustained ‘readings’ of cultural texts and artefacts. You will be asked to reflect and examine a range of texts of popular culture, as well as develop your own ‘cultural legal reading’ of a particular text or texts.
