The paper intends to stimulate a reflection among sociologists of law concerning the perspec-tives of the discipline, its role with respect to the changes affecting the University and in rela-tion to the cultural debate in the country. The aim is to promote the public offer of the disci-pline to traditional and new stakeholders. This contribution can be considered as a draft be-cause its authors want to provide readers with a certain interim and initial proposal, allowing the community of students and scholars to take part in the broadest possible and constructive dialogue. The text consists of two levels, marked by different typographic elements. The body of the text describes an argumentative and conceptual "watermark"concerning the construction of a disciplinary identity, while in italics authors try to give one of the theoretical and practical development of its possible route.

Keywords: Sociology of law - Theory of action - Legal imagination - Legal culture
