Legal Treasure Tours

Legal Treasure Project

The Legal Treasure Project builds on the premise that objects (manuscripts, photographs, maps, audio-visual material, rare books, ephemera, works of art and so on) can serve to generate, focus, evidence, illustrate and share legal ideas; as well as enabling questioning of the nature, mechanics, and social and political implications of the history of law and law generally.

Legal Treasure Tours are an opportunity to place them in the historical and social contexts that might render them 'legal' phenomena, and in so doing to consider their moral subtext.

For additional resources see sociolegal objects resource page.
