Call For Certificate Course on law and Society @ GNLU, GandhiNagar 

Certificate Course on Law and Society (21-23 July, 2017)

About the course:  

The course emphasizes the relationship between the internal logic of legal devices and economic, political and social processes. Emphasis is placed upon developing a perspective which views law as a practical resource, a mechanism for handling the widest range of unspecified social issues, problems, and conflicts, and at the same time, as a set of shared representations and aspirations.  The students will learn to examine the role of the legal system and specific legal issues from the perspectives of the social sciences and humanities. A set of topics has been selected to develop understanding of the situational and systemic demands within which actors in the legal system operate and perform their roles; at the same time, we will try to discover systematic patterns in the uses and consequences of law.
