Webinar - Law and Society: Sociology for Cutting Edge Lawyering

13 Dec 2023

06:00 PM - 07:00 PM



During this webinar, we will dive deep into the interconnected world of law and society, breaking away from conventional perspectives. Our expert speaker will illuminate how sociology offers a unique lens through which to explore the origins of social and legal norms. This isn't just about rules; it's about understanding law as a living entity, woven into the fabric of stories, traditions, and the intricate social tapestry.

Among the key insights, we'll explore the nexus of law and society, positioning law as a central player in the dynamics of our social world. We'll delve into the transformative power of sociological imagination, showcasing how law emerges not just from textbooks but from the lived experiences of class, economy, state, gender, and family. The session will also challenge traditional norms, encouraging critical thinking and urging us to view law as an integral component within the broader societal context.

As a special feature, we'll share exclusive experiences from BITSLAW, where we're experimenting with innovative teaching methods in sociology. Imagine self-reflection on your own societal experiences and engaging in group activities like parliamentary-style debates and card games.
