Jurisprudence is about the nature of law and justice. It embraces studies and theories from a range of disciplines such as history, sociology, political science, philosophy, psychology and even economics. Why do people obey the law? How does law serve society? What is law’s relation to morality? What is the nature of rights? This book introduces and critically discusses the major traditions of jurisprudence.
