Socio-legal Studies

Socio-legal studies is an interdisciplinary research field in which law is explored as a social phenomenon. Research in this area aims to understand how legal ideas, practices and institutions are influenced by or function within the cultural, economic, historical, political and social context. Scholars often draw on social theory or critical theory as well as other disciplines, such as cultural studies, anthropology, criminology, economics, sociology, to inform their theoretical, conceptual and methodological approaches.
