Law and Literature was founded in 1988 as the journal of the Law and Literature movement. It has since become the leading interdisciplinary law journal directed to law and the arts, with a specific focus on critical theory, historical inquiry, and literary expression in its diverse media and forms. It welcomes articles examining intersections between literary and legal traditions, and provides a forum for reconsidering disciplinary boundaries and categories. Contributions to the journal have come from Stanley Fish, Cornelia Vismann, Laurent de Sutter, Bernhard Schlink, Andrew Counter, Julie Stone Peters, Barton Beebe, Anselm Haverkamp, Desmond Manderson, Maria Aristodemou, James Boyd White, and Paul Raffield.
 
Law and Literature is edited by Professor Marco Wan (mwan@hku.hk), the Executive Editor and General Editors, with the support of an expansive international Editorial Board, and appears three times a year. The journal is open to submissions in any domain of law and the arts; published articles have undergone editorial screening and blind peer review.
