This paper discusses the key findings of an exploratory study Law in Children’s Lives funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) under its transformative research grant scheme. Using a speciallydesigned digital game as a research tool, the study has assessed and explored the legal understanding and knowledge of over 600 children aged 8- 11 years, situated in the context of scenarios that children themselves identified as being relevant to their everyday lives.
