LAW108 Law and Society

*Not offered until Semester 2, 2025 Law is more than just legislation or the decisions of judges. Law, as a concept, is framed by differing ideas about what it is, what it ought to be, and when it should punish or be disobeyed. These questions of legal power and authority are central to understanding and critiquing how law functions in our world. This is the realm of jurisprudence – the study of which will allow you to think critically about law, its role in society and the inability to separate law from its context.
