Sociology of law
Licence Sciences socialesParcours Sociologie de l'intervention sociale, des conflits et de la médiation


This course introduces students to the sociological analysis of law through a selection of empirical investigations and theoretical works drawn from the field of what in English-speaking countries is known as “law and society”. Students will be immersed in a variety of topics and debates taking place within this field through the in-depth study of key texts which are solely accessible in the English language. Relevant concepts within the field of the sociology of law, such as “legal culture”, “legal mobilization”, “legal field”, “legal (rights) consciousness”, the “making of law” or “gender and judging”, will be critically assessed.
