About the Journal


"All scholars interested in the relationship between law and literature,
law and philosophy and law and history should make a regular habit of reading Law and Humanities. Lawyers and other legal professionals will find a wide range of articles and reviews that expand their knowledge of the way in which law interacts with a wide range of humanistic pursuits."

Barbara Shapiro, Emerita Professor, Rhetoric Department,
University of California Berkeley

Law and Humanities is a peer-reviewed journal, providing a forum for scholarly discourse within the arts and humanities around the subject of law. For this purpose, the arts and humanities disciplines are taken to include literature, history (including history of art), philosophy, theology, classics and the whole spectrum of performance and representational arts. The remit of the journal does not extend to consideration of the laws that regulate practical aspects of the arts and humanities (such as the law of intellectual property). Law and Humanities is principally concerned to engage with those aspects of human experience which are not empirically quantifiable or scientifically predictable. The general editors welcome scholarly submissions in the English language from writers, regardless of their particular background discipline or disciplines. Each issue will carry four or five major articles of between 8,000 and 12,000 words each. The journal will also carry shorter papers (up to 4,000 words) sharing good practice in law and humanities education; reports of conferences; reviews of books, exhibitions, plays, concerts and other artistic publications. Law and Humanities is published twice a year, appearing in June and December.
