This presentation was prepared for the Jurisprudence of the Future: Law, Justice and Science Fiction theme of the 2022 SLSA Annual Conference in York, organised by Alex Green and Mitch Travis.
In it I explore how design might provide a bridge for sociolegal researchers to access the jurisprudential potential of science fiction; especially those researchers who are wary-yet-curious about futures and other unknowables.
