Legal geography takes the reciprocal interconnections between law and spatiality as core objects of inquiry. The introduction explores three broadly sequential modes of legal geographic research. The first mode of legal geography includes disciplinary work in law or geography that is modeled on the conventional image of import and export. The second is an interdisciplinary pursuit in which scholars in the eponymous fields draw on the work of one another and seek to contribute to the development of a common project. The third mode—which the authors encourage scholars to explore—begins to move beyond legal geography to transdisciplinary, even postdisciplinary, modes of scholarship. Ironically, then, the success of legal geography will be in its ability to transcend the bidisciplinary focus that has characterized this scholarship up to this point. A richer exploration of law and space becomes possible, as do more robust engagements with time and power.
