The JLS

Established as the leading British periodical for Socio-Legal Studies, The Journal of Law and Society offers an interdisciplinary approach to contemporary socio-legal issues.

The Journal of Law and Society website offers an ever-growing repository of information, interviews, discussions and public events for the benefit of the socio-legal community.

The website also provides the home of the Journal of Law and Society Blog, an online space in which socio-legal scholars are exploring ideas and engaging in further debate beyond our Journal; challenging assumptions and pushing the boundaries of socio-legal studies in the ways that JLS authors have been doing for nearly 50 years.
