Law, Literature and the Humanities invites original interdisciplinary presentations that engage with legal topics through or alongside literature or some other aspect of humanities and the arts (e.g. legal history, film and drama, music, and legal linguistics). There is no specific legal topic that the stream organisers expect papers to focus on, but papers are particularly welcome that are concerned with the performance or representation of law and legal themes in textual, visual, oral, or some other form.  The panel provides a forum for insights about law which may not be empirically quantifiable or scientifically predictable, but which tell us something about law’s imagination, its drives and anxieties, or its metaphors, narratives, plots or characters.
