The work of Eugen Ehrlich (1862 – 1922) is directly
relevant for an understanding of law in society and of the
role of sociology of law, for both law and social sciences.
Today, it is possible to see behind the smokescreen of
historical debates and to assess his key ideas in the light
of today’s problems. The coexistence of state and local law
still challenges lawyers and decision-makers. Ehrlich
suggests sociology of law as an instrument to address social
and legal problems that supplements standard legal
methodology. Articles in this book place Eugen Ehrlich in
the context of his times, outline the international
reception of his work and show the relevance of his thoughts
for contemporary issues.
