This unique Research Handbook maps the historical, theoretical, and methodological concepts in sociology of law, exploring the rich and complex nature of this area of research. It argues that sociology of law flourishes due to its strong capacity for interdisciplinary engagement and links to other scientific concepts, methodologies and research fields.

Composed as a set of enquiries into the current state of sociology of law, expert contributions cover diverse themes such as inequality and discrimination, crime and punishment, and social justice. Reflecting on recent publications in law and society, socio-legal studies and interdisciplinary law research, the Research Handbook revisits the specific role of sociology of law, its disciplinary boundaries and its relationship to both legal and social sciences.

The comprehensive nature of the Research Handbook on the Sociology of Law will appeal to law and social justice practitioners and scholars, as well as students in legal and social science fields who are looking to understand current trends and future research in the discipline.
Critical Acclaim
‘This rich collection is an extremely valuable resource, a reliable and instructive vade mecum to the sociology of law broadly conceived. It covers relations between it and neighbouring disciplines, core themes within the discipline itself, and its application to central areas of law. The authors are major players in their fields, and reliable and authoritative guides to their subjects. Moreover, the chapters are much more than just introductory surveys – they add distinctively and often substantially to the fields they discuss.’
– Martin Krygier, University of New South Wales, Australia
