The objective of the Master of Science in Sociology of Law from Lund University is to increase the students’ knowledge of how the law and legal institutions work at the national and transnational levels and how they impact upon the everyday life of ordinary citizens. The programme will provide the students with the skills they need to critically examine, analyse and evaluate the interplay between socio-legal theory and practice, explore legal developments, and study implementation problems at the national, international and global levels.
The skills provided within this programme will help students to gain the deeper social scientific understanding that is required to continue their studies at the PhD level. They will also enable students to pursue careers within fields which deal with public and private inquiries, project assessments and policy evaluation.
