The Cotterrell Lectures in Sociological Jurisprudence are named in honour of Professor Roger Cotterrell. ‘Sociological jurisprudence’ is understood broadly, as encompassing any theoretical aspect of socio-legal studies, any serious effort to relate jurisprudence and legal theory to changing social and historical conditions, or any topic linking law and social theory.
