Late medieval western European societies saw the emergence of a particular form of socio-legal practice and logic, consisting of the law court and its legal process. Frans Camphuijsen investigates how law courts legitimised their own position as dispute settlers and guardians of social justice by attempting to script people’s conception of what justice was and how one was supposed to achieve it. This process of scripting involved a range of media, including texts , oral speech, embodied activities and the spaces used to perform all these. He argues that the development of law courts was grounded in changing forms of multimedial interaction between those who sought justice and those who claimed to be able to provide it.
