The study of law in UK universities has changed radically over the last 40 years. The rise of socio-legal studies and the rapid expansion of post graduate legal education reflect the shift from vocational, doctrinal scholarship to a more general tradition of liberal arts and social sciences.

Introduction to the Study of Law is an accessible basic guide to the subject offering a highly engaging introduction to the main categories of legal scholarship. Each chapter introduces the respective approach to studying law and describes the kind of questions and methods characteristic to that approach. Comparison are made between approaches and further reading suggestions are supplied.
