Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Adversarial Case-Making contains the table of contents, list of figures, foreword and the introduction. This book is concerned with the temporalities of legal practice, or more precisely, with the ways both past and future are overly present in legal case-making. It perceives case-makers as people whether co-authors, ghostwriters, representatives, or spokespersons that are concerned with the case's past and that anticipate its future, and by doing so perform the identity of it in the light of competing cases. The micro-studies presented in the book elaborate on three mechanisms: staging, mobilisation, and replication in order to account for the complex dynamics of adversarial case-making.

Keywords: adversarial case-making; legal practice; mobilisation
