Course content

LSE is one of the world’s leading social science institutions and, since its foundation just over a century ago, the study of law and anthropology has been an integral part of the School’s mission. The MSc Law, Anthropology and Society draws on the established strengths of the Department of Law and the Department of Anthropology, both of which rank alongside the most highly rated departments in the subjects worldwide and have important relationships with professional and regulatory bodies.

This interdisciplinary programme forms part of LSE's innovative graduate teaching and research in legal and social science theory. It offers an excellent and intensive introduction to the aspects of anthropological and social theory essential to the analysis of law in society and provides training in appropriate research methods. It is aimed at students interested in developing cross-cultural perspectives on law and who wish to go on either to undertake further research in the area, or to develop their interest in an area of professional legal practice.
