Law, Culture and the Humanities is a publication of the Association for the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities. It is co-sponsored by the Socio-Legal Research Centre at Griffith University (Australia) and Amherst College (USA) and is published three times a year.

Crossing traditional divides to reflect the diverse nature of this exciting area, the scope of Law, Culture and the Humanities includes:

  • Legal history
  • Legal theory and jurisprudence
  • Law and cultural studies
  • Law and literature
  • Legal hermeneutics
