About

This Law, Anthropology and Society programme offered by London School of Economics and Political Science is jointly run by the Department of Anthropology and Department of Law, and is administered in the Department of Anthropology. It offers the following benefits:

  • Situated in the only institution devoted solely to the social sciences in the UK, the Anthropology and the Law Departments are distinguished by the research of their faculty and by their exceptionally international student recruitment.
  • The programme offers an excellent and intensive introduction to the aspects of anthropological and social theory essential to the analysis of law in society.
  • This interdisciplinary programme forms part of LSE's innovative graduate teaching and research in legal and social science theory.
  • The programme provides an ideal preparation for practical or research work on law in the context of social relations.
Programme details

Scheduled teaching normally includes six hours of seminars per week (depending on options selected), supplemented by regular academic tutorials.

The programme offers a foundation in those elements of anthropological and socio-legal theory essential to an understanding of law in society, and provides training in appropriate research methods. The programme achieves this through: a compulsory course combining lectures, classes and an innovative research seminar; the supervised crafting of an individual programme of two further courses in law or anthropology (or exceptionally another social science) selected according to the academic background and research interest of the student; and supervision of a dissertation.
