Sociology of Law

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment  V

Sociology is one of the modern social sciences which seeks to understand and explain the nature of complex social processes in small groups, communities and whole societies. Sociologists look at ideas, moral values, patterns of interaction and the persistence of institutions. The Sociology of Law takes as its particular focus the way conduct is defined as normal or deviant and the range of regulatory mechanisms to make and enforce this distinction. A sociological perspective on the law therefore is a singularly comprehensive issue here, as it is inclusive of the whole range of social relationships. From this perspective, both law as a mechanism of social regulation and law as a field of knowledge, become objects of study which can be explained in sociological terms.
