European perspectives on law and society: a comparative and historical approach

Law bottom-up: legal consciousness in Europe and Japan
In this seminar we will discuss the way that citizens think about the law. This question has been central to research in the field of law and society worldwide. In a "revival" of the classic question in this field, recent publications have proposed a new approach on thinking about the law and the role that law plays in society today. This new approach was mainly proposed by the Dutch socio-legal scholar Marc Hertogh in his book "Nobody's law: Legal consciousness and legal alienation in everyday life" (Springer, 2018). He departed from the observation that there is a crisis of the rule of law in Europe because of an "alienation" of people from the law. Hertogh argues that scholars of law and society have to take this crisis seriously to guarantee a continued proper functioning of the legal system and hence, to ensure a robust democracy. In this seminar we will introduce the field of law and society by specifically analysing the question of legal consciousness (法意識) in relation with democracy. We will pay attention to classical research on legal consciousness in Japan, its content, methodology, social context, strengths and flaws. We will then read Marc Hertogh's book and discuss whether his approach is new and relevant. What does this book mean for the study of law and society in Japan? Are law and democracy in Japan in a similar state of crisis than Europe? In sum, in this seminar, law in society will be analysed from a bottom-up perspective, i.e. from the perspective of the people and how this impacts the legal system (therefore we will keep the macroscopic and comparative perspective in mind). Students will be encouraged to raise issues, suggest readings, articles from newspapers, movies, etc, and introduce relevant cases. Students will also be introduced to and conduct interviews with relevant actors.
