Law and Sociology

Banakar, Reza LU and Max, Travers (2002) In An Introduction to Law and Social Theory p.345-352
Abstract
The contributions in this book have demonstrated that sociology of law is a rich and complex subject that contains a wide range of theoretical approaches which can be used to study law. There are however fundamental disagreements over how sociology of law should develop. In this chapter, we will review these debates, and examine the institutional obstacles which prevent it from developing in the same way as the sociologies of education, science or medicine. We will end by presenting our own views on why law students should study sociology of law, and why sociologists should pay more attention to law and legal institutions.
