What Can an Examination of Russia Tell Us about Law in Society?

This workshop will survey the contemporary scene in Russia with regard to how law is used in everyday life, the means of dispute resolution, together with a more speculative assessment of what might be learned from the Russian case about law as a social phenomenon in general.
