Law of Star Wars

Feedback form is now closed.
This panel seeks to answer burning questions about the law in Star Wars: If Han shot first, is he a murderer, or was he in imminent fear for his life? What law, if any, binds those in rebellion against the Empire (or the Republic)? Are clones people? What are their rights (and the rights of robots)? Who owns R2D2 and C3PO? Can Darth Vader really just alter a deal? And much more . . .
