Through the lens of feminist legal theory, this essay aims to draw out the connections be- tween Lacey’s In Search of Criminal Responsibility and her other work and the work of interlocutors on issues relating to law and gender. Lacey’s work is placed into conversation with a broader community of ideas that challenge dominant discourses, not only in theory, but also in academic institutions and practices themselves. In doing so, the essay highlights the importance of taking critical approaches to law—and life—seriously.
