Cambridge Studies in Law and Society aims to publish the best scholarly work on legal discourse and practice in their social and institutional contexts, combining theoretical insights and empirical research. The fields that it covers are studies of law in action; the sociology of law; the anthropology of law; cultural studies of law, including the role of legal discourses in social formations; law and economics; law and politics; and studies of governance. The books consider all forms of legal discourse across societies, rather than being limited to lawyers discourses alone. The series editors come from a range of disciplines: academic law; socio-legal studies; sociology and anthropology. All have been actively involved in teaching and writing about law in context.
