DERE-1103 Legal Sociology
This course places Law in a social context. To that end, it dwells on how "the law in books", (codes and laws, legal doctrine handbooks, etc.) is effectively practiced (or ignored) by citizens, attorneys, judges, civil servants and other social actors. In a nutshell, the course studies "law in action". After a brief introduction to the perspective of legal sociology, the practice of Law is placed in the specific context where we live, i.e. Colombia and Latin America.
