Socio-Legal Studies 

Faculty in the Department of Sociology are interested in a wide range of questions regarding the nature of crime, law and legal control in Canada.  In substantive terms, their work explores issues as diverse as the role of human sacrifice in human history, the gendered character of the legal profession, crime and homelessness, corporate crime and patterns of criminal victimization.  The research which members of the socio-legal group undertake employs a range of methodologies from those which are heavily quantitative to those which reflect more humanistic and qualitative approaches.  Equally varied are the theoretical prespectives which inform their work.
