The Wild Law Judgment Project has been inspired by various feminist judgment writing projects and in particular by the Australian feminist judgment project, in which judgments from all areas of Australian law have been rewritten from a feminist perspective. The idea behind the Wild Law Judgment Project was that judgments, selected from any area of law, would be viewed and rewritten through a wild law lens. In the Wild Law Judgment Project, wild law seeps into other areas of the legal system including constitutional law, international law, torts, criminal law, administrative law, intellectual property law and native title law. The looming crisis of climate change has influenced three rewritten Australian environmental law judgments, which deal with challenges to proposed coalmine developments. The judgments from the Wild Law Judgment Project constitute a coherent body of wild law judgments which may lack the 'force of law' or conventional legitimacy but which have a powerful political and educative value.
