Joan E. Neal & David A. Weisbach, "Legal Issues in Game of Thrones"

Watchers of the series might reasonably ask if there is any law in Game of Thrones, or rather if everything that happens is a completely lawless exercise of raw power. We assess the role of law in the series through the lens of familiar law school doctrinal classes - Contracts, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, and Ethics/Professional Responsibility.
