SOC 855 - Sociology of Law

This seminar begins with a history of the field, and then narrows to a single theoretical problem: the sociology of the case.  In particular, it addresses how the social structure of a legal case predicts and explains the handling of the case, such as the style and quantity of social control it attracts.  The readings include theoretical works as well as research reports.
