Abstract

This is the Introduction/Editorial to a Special Issue of Critical Studies in Improvisation / √Čtudes critiques en improvisation, entitled "Just Improvisation: Enriching Law through Musical Techniques, Discourses, and Pedagogies".

They discuss the background to this Special Issue, including the history of the interdisciplinary Translating Improvisation Research Group based at Queen't University Belfast (QUB), the AHRC-funded research project, "Into the Key of Law: Transposing Musical Improvisation. The Case of Child Protection in Northern Ireland", of which they led in 2014-15, and the "Just Improvisation" Symposium (QUB, May 2015), from which the papers contained in this Special Issue emerged.

Keywords: Law, justice, musical improvisation, pedagogy, judging, child welfare, social work
