 What is the benefit to studying law as a social science? 

I think it's probably more interesting because we get into talking about how law plays in society and vice vera. This is my first course so I'm not sure about other courses of law. We get into the different issues about law and society like the inequalities. Also, understanding that in law documents and such that everyone is equal and everyone is held to the law for their actions if unlawful. This is not the case with society and government officaials. We learnt that many things can affect the judgments of the way judges may look at race, gender, and others that may result in equality of law.

Definition from google "  Social science is a major category of academic disciplines, concerned with society and the relationships among individuals within a society. It in turn has many branches, each of which is considered a "social science".

In many ways we are concerned with society. What are reasons for taking law or becoming a lawyer? Our relationships we study in acordence with the law. I think answer big questions to yourself helps in understanding the path we walk or beliefs we hold. Given that idea in social science we see that everyone has an opinion and have beliefs and may handle cases differently than others. We then see that the more people aggree what right or the dominant opions take much of discisions. It's interesting to know and see the relationships with society and law.
