This chapter summarizes the book’s arguments, restates the importance of an acoustic jurisprudence, and gestures towards future avenues for research. At its core, this book has argued for a fundamental shift in how we think about and relate to law’s institutional life and the practice of judgment. The purpose of an acoustic jurisprudence, it suggests, is to open scholars and practitioners’ ears to the diverse ways in which law and sound are bound together, to hold institutions like the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) to account for how they think and work with sound, for the judgments they make, and to understand how law is both implicated in and to some extent productive of our sonic worlds.
