Research Handbook on the Sociology of Law

"The Research Handbook On the Sociology of Law" edited by Jiří Přibáň maps the sociology of law as theoretically and conceptually rich and complex social science. It focuses on relationship between the sociology of law and legal theory, jurisprudence, history, anthropology, ethnography, economy, science and societal regulation. It addresses sociological conceptualisations of the rule of law, living law and legal culture, legal system, legal consciousness, legal subjectivity, legal temporality, legal images and professions. It also discusses the sociology of specific legal disciplines and different areas of positive law, such as constitutional law, contract law, property law, family law, law and religion, health law, criminal law, housing law, labour law, digital law and artificial intelligence, and transitional justice.
