This article examines the hybrid legal geographies of the war crimes court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo. Through the lens of hybrid legal geographies, it studies the circulation of evidence, the choreography of the courtroom, and the nature and possibilities for legal observation. It traces the disjuncture between the imagined geographies of legal jurisdiction and the material and embodied spaces of trial practices. In conclusion, it argues that the establishment of the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina illustrates the tensions that emerge when an institution of trial justice is used to strengthen the coherence of a postconflict state
