Research Seminar with Jiří Přibáň: Past, Present and Future of research in Sociology of Law
The Sociology of Law Department arranges a series of research seminars inviting both local and international researchers who are conducting state of the art research within various areas of law and society.
The Sociology of Law Research Seminar with Jiří Přibáň covers his recently edited book: Research Handbook on the Sociology of Law, published by Edward Elgar Publishing in 2020. The book 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.
