Following the first international conference organised by the Law and Humanities research group of the CERSA (UMR 7106) in Panthéon-Assas University in June 2017, this volume gathers a selection of papers presented at this conference. Written by an international group of highly regarded scholars most of whom teach, or study the law or humanities, this volume of twelve essays explores the complex relations of humanities with the law in Common Law countries, offering innovative readings in this interdisciplinary field. Making use of a variety of methodological approaches such as literature, sociology, history, psychology and comparative law, this volume investigates the dark corners of Common Law which are often associated with legal theory and practice, hence questioning, and sometimes threatening, the constitutional foundations as well as the implementation of the law. This book opens with a foreword written by Professor Judith Resnik (Arthur Liman Professor of Law at Yale Law School) and is followed by a chapter written by Professor Paul Raffield (Professor of Law at the University of Warwick), the two keynote speakers of the conference.
