In collaboration with the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society is pleased to publish a workshop report examining different aspects of the interplay between law and society.
The Foundations of Law emerges from the Oxford Legalism Project, and takes a comparative approach to inquire into how society chooses and structures the particular form of law it adopts, with case studies from England, France, Algeria, India, Yemen, and Southeast Asia.
