This book explores the rich relationship between law and popular culture. Already a burgeoning field of study in other jurisdictions, this book draws upon a uniquely Australian analysis of movies, television shows, music and books dealing with various aspects of the law and legal system.



It features contributions from Australian legal experts on their particular areas of expertise, including indigenous legal issues, international law, crime, business, medical negligence and surveillance. Each chapter contains an introduction to the law, analysis of key texts, guided discussion and further reading, which can form the basis of weekly classes or be read as an introduction to a more indepth consideration of the relevant laws.



Law and Popular Culture in Australia creates a solid foundation for the further exploration of the relationship of the law with the popular imagination of the society that sustains it, and provides readers with a new lens through which to analyse the successes and weaknesses of modern legal culture.
