About Law and Sociology at School of Law, University of Warwick

What will I learn?

This joint degree aims to develop your understanding of technical and doctrinal aspects of the law, sociological theory and research, and social problems, institutions and practices. As a joint degree student in Law you will also gain a critical awareness of the role that law can play in modern societies, and will develop both contextual and professional perspectives on the law, seeing legal institutions, ideas and processes as an important part of society. As a joint degree student in Sociology you will have the chance to explore key phenomena and problems in contemporary society, including crime and justice, gender and sexualities, media and technologies, health and illness, race and ethnicities, markets and global economies.

In addition to covering subject-specific content, this course takes an interdisciplinary approach that enables lawyers to understand law in a broad sociological context and helps sociologists to understand legal techniques and institutions.

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 experts in the sociological study of the law who are teaching and researching in the Law School and the Department of Sociology at Warwick. Taking this degree will give you the opportunity to develop high-quality skills in legal and sociological research, presentation, debating, writing and independent study, and to acquire legal and sociological understanding that will enable you to participate effectively in policy debates.

By successfully completing all the core Law modules, you gain a qualifying law degree through this course. Having spent the first and second year of your degree developing core sociological and legal skills, in your third and fourth year you can choose from a wide range of modules tailored to your academic interests.
