Edward Mussawir is a lecturer at Griffith Law School Brisbane and the author of Jurisdiction in Deleuze: The Expression and Representation of Law. His research has focused on the reception of the work of Gilles Deleuze in jurisprudence and the theories of persons, possession, procedure and judgment
