Abstract
Law and popular culture is an exciting topic at the intersection of law and humanities. This booklet, the result of a Maastricht Research Based Learning (MARBLE) project, contains five papers that reflect upon alternative perceptions of justice in popular culture. The papers deal with the law of surrogacy in soap operas, law and musicals, rights for robots in science fiction, the portrayal of law in Erin Brockovich and an inquiry into the principles of contract law in children’s cinema.
