American Sociological Association

Section on Sociology of Law

Welcome to the Sociology of Law Section website!  Members of this section have diverse research interests dealing with the law in many permutations, contexts, and formats, using a variety of methodologies.  As a section, we offer several panels at each annual meeting and support book, article, and paper prizes. Recently, the section began hosting a Sociology of Law mini-conference on August 11, 2017, the day before the ASA annual meeting.
