The study of space in law insists on the material world as essentially constitutive of law and in both the analytic and the continental traditions of jurisprudence, law has too often been treated as a series of abstract propositions, a structure of norms in search of applications. Legal spaces explores the diversity of legal norms and the disparateness of legal effects not just in terms of the social elements that constantly work to generate and differentiate it, but the physical elements too, and of course the social and the physical are likewise mutually implicated.
