The Forum for Humor and the Law (ForHum) was founded in 2022 by Dr Alberto Godioli (University of Groningen) and Prof. Laura E. Little (Temple Law School). Its goal is to serve as a platform for practicing lawyers, legal and humor scholars, artists, and anyone who might be interested in the multiform relationship between humor, freedom of expression and the law.

The ForHum website was created in the framework of the ‘Humor in Court‘ project, funded by the Dutch Research Council from 2022 to 2027 (NWO Vidi grant VI.Vidi.201.111, Principal Investigator Dr Alberto Godioli). In the website you will find regular updates on related topics, a list of scholarly resources, and a comprehensive database of legal cases regarding humor and satire from all over the world.
