There are many benefits of studying law as a social science. By studying law as a social science, we can see law from a different point of view. Studying law as a social science allows us to observe how people, and ourselves react under law. For example, we can look at statistics of how many people were speeding or even how many people committed crimes of murder under certain periods of time when laws were different then they are now. With those statistics, we can also examine how many people that were male or female committed those crimes.
