This chapter seeks to summarise both the existing scholarship on the sociology of contract and property law, and to call for an explicit sociology of both contract and property law. These two doctrinal areas are often considered foundational areas of law and their meanings and concepts can be adapted and adopted by other areas of law. The chapter argues that meaning has proven central to the sociology of contract and property law but concludes that more work needs to be done examining how these two areas of law interact.
