The study of law and society rests on the belief that legal rules and decisions must be understood in context. Law is not autonomous, standing outside of the social world, but is deeply embedded within society. Its philosophical roots lie in the jurisprudential writings of the legal realists, who saw law as a vehicle for social engineering and challenged depictions of law as apolitical and autonomous.

Law and society scholars of the 1960s were also responding to many of the burning issues (literally-from riots in Los Angeles, Detroit, and elsewhere) of the day.
