The Law of Enclosures is a 1996 novel by Dale Peck, which was adapted into the 1999 film The Law of Enclosures by Canadian director John Greyson.

A cross between a conventional novel and a memoir, the book dramatizes the marital relationship of Henry and Beatrice, characters based on Peck's real-life parents, depicted in alternating time frames ranging from a young couple first falling in love to an older couple renewing their bond after 40 years of marriage.
