Law and Society
Academic Unit: Faculty of Law and Political Sciences
Colombian Ministry of Science
Since its origin, the group seeks to reflect and contribute to the conception of Law in the current social context, likewise, to the type of legal knowledge in our school. Its critical commitment was not explicit at times due to the academic practices which were framed inside liberal tradition curricula and study plans. This policy reproduced a formal knowledge and cultivated a lawyer to intervene in social conflicts primarily through reactive and individual litigation.
