    This unit will explore the interconnections between law, cultural forms and practices and the creative process. Students will gain an understanding of law's regulation of the creation, transmission and consumption of cultural artefacts. They will also draw on a range of theoretical perspectives to investigate the myriad cultural representations of law and justice, for example in literature, screen, visual and interactive artistic forms, and to interpret their historical and contemporary meanings.

    This unit may be co-taught with a PG version of the unit.
