1. Socio-Legal Theory and Practice (SOLP02), 15 credits

The second semester begins with the second profile course (15 credits) in sociology of law, which directly builds upon the knowledge and skills gained in the first term. While the first profile course emphasised the theoretical and disciplinary development of the subject, this second course in sociology of law focuses on the major research traditions within sociology of law.

The students will become familiar with various socio-legal approaches and learn how to plan theoretically informed and methodologically viable studies of law in society. As part of this second course, they will be encouraged to identify a discrete socio-legal problem, which they may further investigate in their Master’s thesis.
