Masters Degrees in Sociology of Law

We have 126 Masters Degrees in Sociology of Law

Masters degrees in Sociology of Law offer advanced study of the law - and related legal structures - as a product of social phenomena, combining methodologies from Law, Sociology, Social Policy, and Economics. Related postgraduate specialisms include Law and Society, and Social Welfare. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Law subject.

Why study a Masters in Sociology of Law?

## Courses in this field offer a highly interdisciplinary approach to learning, with methodologies being drawn from the fields mentioned above, as well as other Law subjects including Comparative Law, Jurisprudence, and Legal Practise. Training typically covers methods for examining law, legal institutions and legal behaviour through social scientific methods. For example, you might analyse how crime may emerge as a result of social inequality, or the ways in which the law is a form of social as well as legal control. You might even analyse how laws and legal institutions have progressed historically in response to social and cultural change. Careers in this field are highly varied, but may include traditional legal consultation, as well as policy-making roles on behalf of government departments, regulatory authorities, and even charities.
