MacCormick's Institutions of Law is the culmination of a lifetime's work in legal theory by one of the world's most respected legal theorists. Featuring an impressive collection of contributions from well-known legal theorists from around the world, all of whom are familiar with MacCormick’s work, this collection provides a cutting edge account of the book’s significance.
