  • Provides an innovative and original approach to law
  • Connects legal thinking to the spatial turn in cultural studies
  • Only monograph on spatial thinking of law
  • Based on a performative paradigm of law

This book is concerned with a central question in contemporary legal theory: how to describe global law? In addressing this question, the book brings together two features that are different and yet connected to one another: the conceptual description of contemporary law on the one hand, and methods of taking concrete perspectives on law on the other hand.

The book provides a useful concept for describing global law: thinking of  law spatially. It illustrates that space is a concept with the capacity to capture the relationality, dynamics, and hybridity of law. Moreover, this book investigates the role of topological thinking in finding concrete perspectives on law.

Legal Spaces offers an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to law.
