Have you ever sat down to watch your favourite Star Wars film and had a niggling feeling that it was all a bit too familiar? A bizarre sense of recollection, a kind of Déjà vu that can’t be explained? Well, you’re not alone.

Taking to Twitter this week, future pupil barrister Robin Harris has broken down the connections between legal modules and Star Wars films.

The results? Check out the thread below, which with Harris’ permission we have reproduced in full.

Light v Dark

Contract Law = A New Hope
