MSc Law, Anthropology and Society


Course Description

About the MSc programme

This MSc Law, Anthropology and Society draws on the established strengths of the Department of Law and the Department of Anthropology. Both Departments rank alongside the most highly rated departments in the subjects worldwide and have important relationships with professional and regulatory bodies.

This interdisciplinary programme forms part of LSE's innovative graduate teaching and research in legal and social science theory. It offers an excellent and intensive introduction to the aspects of anthropological and social theory, essential to the analysis of law in society, and provides training in appropriate research methods. It is aimed at students interested in developing cross-cultural perspectives on law and who wish to go on either to undertake further research in the area, or to develop their interest in an area of professional legal practice.

The compulsory course draws on anthropological themes and texts to develop an innovative perspective on contemporary legal norms and institutions. You will also be expected to choose courses to the value of two full units from a range of options in the Department of Law and/or in the Department of Anthropology.

Graduate destinations
