Learning Objectives

The topics presented in the course are relevant to both for the sociological and for the social service curricola, as it will be introduced both general problems of law and society relationship and the analysis of the evolution of family forms. Specifically, the course has as general objective the acquisition of skills in the field of sociology of law, as it stands in the current framework of the critical study of law, and of the main problems that affect its application and functions. In view of achieving this objective, subjects as rules,  action, institutions,  roles, opinions will be addressed, both in a sociological and a juridical science view.

The course also aims to introduce students to the study of the relations between the family and the law, as they are studied by the sociology of law in the analysis of the legal regulation of family and of the evolving socio- economic context and changes in life-courses. In this perspective, the analysis will highlight persistence and changes in social phenomena relating to families and legal regulation; Particular attention will be paid to changes in parenting and relationships between parents, legal culture, and expert knowledge. Thus, at the end of the course students will be able to acquire an adequate understanding of the evolution of family and parental relations in recent decades, putting them in relation with the legal regulation of families.
