The Law and Society Association is an interdisciplinary scholarly organization committed to social scientific, interpretive, and historical analyses of  law across multiple social contexts.  For sociolegal scholars, law is not only the words of official documents.  Law also can be found in the diverse understandings and practices of people interacting within domains that law governs, in the claims that people make for legal redress of injustices, and in the coercive power exercised to enforce lawful order.  Sociolegal scholars also address evasions of law, resistance and defiance toward law, and alternatives to law in structuring social relations.

Thank you for submitting your teaching materials to the Law and Society Association Teaching Materials Repository, where LSA is accepting submissions for syllabi, assignments, in-class activities, and teaching materials for a wide range of courses. Please use the following form to provide the information we need to upload your materials.

If the system does not recognize your email address, then you will need to create a new account.  This is a different system than our membership, registration or abstract submission system.

This is a great time to get involved. We are looking for volunteers to serve on our awards and prize committees and our standing committees.
