Law and Popular Culture brings out the manner in which popular culture affects law and its understanding by actors in society. This academic movement explores law in different environments, such as art and entertainment, as well as cultural movements as phenomena to which the law must relate. 

Over the last five years, the Round­table has become a forum within the Faculty of Law of Maastricht University, to discuss approaches to these areas of study. It offers a space to discuss the legal significance of objects that either defy or deplete categorization, underlying the value that non-conventional approaches to law offer to the better understanding of social sciences.
