Description of the research topic:

The topic of the PhD course is the social recrutation of legal professions. Because of the history, identity and attributes of the legal professions this is an important legal sociological question, because social origin influences professions’ internal and external perception. There are significant differences between different legal professions considering not only their social backgrounds, but other aspects as well. Thus for example composition of gender, status, social prestige and income can differ. Within the framework of the topic there is a way to explore the explanations of the differences and causalities.
