German Association for Law and Society
The German Association for Law and Society (formerly: Association for Sociology of Law) was founded in 1976 by a number of legal academics interested in introducing the social sciences into legal education, amongst them Thomas Raiser, Jutta Limbach, Winfried Hassemer and Wolfgang Hoffmann-Riem. From the beginning, the Association has aimed beyond the circle of law professors; it is a forum for everybody who, from a legal or social scientific perspective, is studying the relationship between law and society.
