Law in Our Lives is a survey text intended primarily for courses in law and society that are taught from a more sociological perspective. It treats law as a complex, evolving, interdisciplinary field, which also makes it suitable for courses in legal history and philosophy. The book is known for its lucid writing style as well as its comprehensiveness--which is viewed as a benefit by some and a drawback by others. It combines detailed theoretical discussions with real-world examples to provide a broad analysis of the nature of law in contemporary society. It includes a wide array of pedagogical material, including boldfaced key terms and discussion questions, as well as appendices on case briefing, law in films, and websites of interest.
