A portal to the open of words about water and other things that break and flow against the shores of land and language.

The word LITTORAL refers to shores, coasts and borders. LITTORAL both sounds like and cuts the ideal of “literal” meaning, word-for-word, letter-for-letter, or line-for-line.

The thought and writing of  law also moves along the littorals where land and water, sound and word, language and its other, meet.

Contributors to LITTORAL LAW challenge the colonial legacies of law by breaking and cutting its sentences open and reassociating their pieces in poetic forms.

Together, these pieces move through and with each other toward other littorals, at once geological, literary and mystical.
