  SOCIOLOGY OF LAW

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2015-16

La asignatura Sociología del Derecho tiene como objetivo fundamental contribuir a que el alumnado del Grado en Criminología adquiera un completo y crítico conocimiento de los principales conceptos, principios y postulados de la Sociología Jurídica, cuyo objeto es responder sistemáticamente al problema de la legitimación del derecho en la sociedad. ¿Derecho, para qué? ¿Derecho para quién? Se trata de proponer una reflexión crítica acerca del papel del derecho en las sociedades del nuevo milenio. Para ello, se debe poner en crisis el sentido común jurídico y someter a análisis cuestiones que la dogmática ha dado por ciertas y la realidad, en cambio, por inciertas: vg. la neutralidad de los operadores jurídicos, la omnisciencia de la ley, la univocidad de las normas y otras muchas. Estas visiones de lo jurídico están más emparentadas al imaginario del siglo XIX que a la complejidad del siglo XXI.
Para lograr este propósito, se familiarizará al estudiante con un amplio rango de teorías clásicas y contemporáneas acerca de las recíprocas relaciones entre derecho y sociedad, el papel del derecho en la sociedad y la profesión jurídica, suministrándole además, la oportunidad de conocer los resultados de específicas investigaciones empíricas realizadas sobre estos temas. Se orientará la enseñanza a promover en el alumnado una actitud positiva para la elaboración de juicios propios en relación a la validez de las teorías y puntos de vistas expresados en relación a la naturaleza del derecho y su función social.
