Masks: the online journal of law and theatre is a new multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed online

intersections of law and theatre. Diverse scholarship exists on some of these intersections,
including: courtroom as theatre; historical connections between theatre and the Inns of Court;
lawyer playwrights; images of lawyers in popular culture; law in literature studies of plays; and
legislative theatre. Masks seeks to bring together continuing scholarship in these areas and to
provide a forum for discussions of new areas of research.
