B.A. LL.B.(Hons.)

Law1

Overview

The connections between law, science, technology and social sciences are ubiquitous increasingly complex in contemporary societies. Symbols of these connections can be seen in road signs, food labels, safety certificates, birth and death certificates, bank cards, medicinal prescriptions, deeds, door security locks, motor vehicle performance tests, public behaviour and its surveillance, and so on. Similar connections can be found in a myriad of more hidden social spaces, such as biochemical laboratories, planning offices, industrial manufacturers, patent offices, crime scenes, law courts, and parliaments. In all these cases, fundamental legally framed social relationships, property ownership, as well as responsibilities, including liability, and rights arising from these.
