What is the future for and of law and society scholarship? The Issue Editors here introduce the issue’s themes of disruption, temporality and law and their interconnection. Questioning the deeper implications that an era of political, cultural and technological disruption has for law and society scholarship, the various contributions to the special issue are given in outline and drawn together. The broader point emerges that any linear conception of temporality must find itself disrupted not by technology itself but by a radical plurality of laws.
