In Legal Staging a group of lawyers and legal historians has tried to identify the new Nordic legal map which is under construction. This volume is a collection of papers addressing legal staging, and most of the articles combine theoretical approaches to the visuality of law with practical experiences and effects. The texts show that law is so much more than law in action and law in books; law is also part of a visual culture. It contributes to that culture and is, in turn, analysed, maintained and criticised by that culture. At the same time, the cultural manifestations of law change the way we understand law and, thus, changes law itself.
