Abstract

This article introduces the key thematics of this special edited collection within a frame of critical legal scholarship. How do lawyers constitute, question and re-make their relation to law and to legal writing? What is at stake in displacing or in claiming law? In co-writing this article, the editors have found it helpful to narrate their own journeys into law in the first person in the ‘Episode’ of Part I. Part II reflects on the risks inherent in searching for authority, rebellion and action in relation to law. Part III outlines some responses to those risks, in terms of the strategic methodologies engaged by the authors included in this edition.
