This innovative Handbook provides an expansive interrogation of the spaces and places of law, exploring how we engage relationally in a material world, within which we are inter-dependent and reliant, and governed by laws in a dynamic process. It advances novel insights into the numerous intersections of space, place and law in our lives.

International contributors offer a range of activity-orientated analyses, focusing on methodology, embodied experience, legal pluralism, conflict and resistance, and non-human and place agency. The Handbook examines a number of cross-cutting themes including social inequality, environmental justice, sustainability, urban development, Indigenous legal systems, the effects of colonialism and property law. Representing a diversity of locales from all around the world, the chapters encompass both urban and rural, terrestrial and marine areas, agential and storied spaces, and fictional as well as ‘real’ places.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach that incorporates law, human and legal geography, planning, sociology, political ecology, anthropology, and beyond, this comprehensive Handbook will be critical reading for scholars and students of these and cognate areas. Its discussion of empirical examples will also be beneficial for practitioners and policymakers interested in these fields.
Critical Acclaim
‘The contributors, refreshingly, are diverse and differently situated. Intellectually, they also come from many worlds — geography, law, planning, anthropology, and so on. Their work speaks to the crucial challenges, tied to systemic inequality, that we confront, while also reminding us of the diverse forms that legal geography takes. It insists that legal geography is needed now, more than ever.’
– from the Foreword by Nicholas Blomley

‘Legal geography has much promise in deepening our understanding of the linkages between societies, their governance, and the world we live in. The Handbook on Space, Place and Law offers not only a major consolidation of the field, but a significant extension. Bartel, Carter and colleagues scope widely across socio-legal contexts, policy sectors and environments, and offer deep insights of great value to geographers and lawyers alike, and indeed to anyone concerned with the conditions of people and their environments.’
– Stephen Dovers, Australian National University
