You will also gain a critical awareness of the role that law can play in modern societies. The combined course offers both contextual and professional perspectives on the law, seeing legal institutions, ideas and processes as an important part of society. As well as subject-specific content, an interdisciplinary approach enables lawyers to understand law in a broad sociological context and helps sociologists to understand legal techniques. A key feature of the course is the second-year module on Social Theory of Law, developed specifically for this course and jointly taught by Warwick Law School and the Department of Sociology. You will develop high-level skills in legal and sociological research, presentation, writing and independent study, and will be equipped with a depth of legal and sociological understanding that will enable you to participate effectively in policy debates.
