The aim of the course is to give the opportunity to the students to improve their understanding of the legal phenomenon as a social phenomenon.

- law and action;
- law and institutions;
- law and social roles;
- law and opinions.
The discussion of these issues will consolidate the understanding of the relation between law and other crucial areas of society: culture, economy, power institutions, mass-media.
In the special part, on Law and Economics, the peculiar relationship between these two social sciences will be highlighted. The purpose is to help the students to adopt a more critical attitude towards all forms of reductionism.

In the special part the attention will be focused on Law and Economics literature, highlighting features, potentialities and limits of this research project, oriented to read law using the tools of economic analysis.
