Their work spans the social sciences, humanities, and law and examines new perspectives on legal relationships and events, punishment as a literary and philosophical issue, and custom and experience in law and society. The articles published here illuminate some of the exciting work being done in interdisciplinary legal scholarship.

Reichman; Theatres of pardoning - tragicomedy and the gunpowder plot, B. Meyler.
