Hilaire McCoubreyProfessor and Director of Postgraduate Affairs, Law School, University of Hull

ISBN: 1855218259

Publisher: Routledge
Format: Hardback
Price: Out of print



This work on the obligatory character of law argues that much of the apparent inconsistency in this area derives from a misconception of conventional linguistic usage. Legal obligation is seen as involving multiple linguistic usages, including at least three different types of ""obligation"".

Contents:
Obligation as a key to Jurisprudence; positivist models of legal obligation; moral analyses of obedience to law; obligation in post-positivist theories; sceptical analyses; superior orders and obligations; validity and obligation; a theory of legal obligation.
