The most significant development has been the publication of the peer-reviewed journal Law and Humanities, which is the only UK journal devoted to the subject. The journal was founded and is edited by Paul Raffield and Gary Watt. It was launched in 2007 at a major conference (organised by the law school) on Shakespeare and the Law and continues to thrive, attracting articles from internationally-renowned scholars. The 2007 conference led to an edited collection: P. Raffield and G. Watt (eds.), Shakespeare and the Law (Oxford: Hart Publishing, 2008). In the past years, Warwick Law School academics have published monographs in the areas of legal history, law and literature, and law and philosophy. These include G. Watt Dress, Law and Naked Truth (Bloomsbury, 2013), R. Probert, A Noble Affair: The Remarkable True Story of the Runaway Wife, the Bigamous Earl and the Farmer's Daughter with J Shaffer and J Bailey (Takeaway, 2013) and The Legal Regulation of Cohabitation: From Fornicators to Family, 1600-2010 (Cambridge University Press, 2012) and P. Raffield, Shakespeare’s Imaginary Constitution: Late-Elizabethan Politics and the Theatre of Law (Hart Publishing, 2010).
