The Cambridge Socio-Legal Group was established in 1997 as an interdisciplinary discussion forum promoting debate on topical socio-legal issues. It is hosted by the Faculty of Law, together with the Centre for Family Research, Faculty of Politics, Psychology, Sociology, and International Studies (PPSIS). The Group serves to bring together people from different faculties and departments across the University (including Law, Criminology, Politics, Psychology, Sociology and International Relations, Psychiatry, Biology, Economics, Social Anthropology, and others) along with socio-legal scholars from other institutions. The Socio-Legal Group thus provides a focus for those in the University and beyond engaged in socio-legal research and actively supports collaborative, inter-disciplinary work through its various activities, in particular its workshop and book projects.
