    The law is a central theme in many of Shakespeare's plays and every play makes some reference to legality or justice. Shakespeare displays considerable interest in the capacity of legal language to convey matters of social, moral and intellectual substance and his use of legal language reveals a familiarity with legal terminology. In this A-Z guide to his legal references, over 100 entries explore early modern social life, legal thought and the interaction of these within Shakespearean drama.
