What is legal geography?

As a sub-field of human geography, legal geography is not just focused on legal institutions, or on the specialized knowledge of cases, claims, principles, strategies, and reasoning. Legal geography explores legal practices and representations across ever-changing spaces, environments, cultures, states and economies. Such a perspective is as broad a view of the world as any other sub-field of geography, advancing dynamic and theoretically varied contributions to the rest of geography and to the interdisciplinary field of law-and-society studies. While the legal geography scholarship in English has not been without limits, this literature has become increasingly sophisticated and theoretically rich, spanning disciplinary, national, and institutional boundaries.
