Jurisprudence considers general philosophical and theoretical questions about the nature, purpose and operation of law as a whole. This book introduces students to contemporary debates in jurisprudence and encourages them to think in a theoretical and critical way about the nature of law, legal reasoning and adjudication. Wider issues of morality, politics and society are discussed with reference to legal cases and examples to provide as broad a perspective on the law as possible.

Key features of this textbook include:-

  • introductions to each chapter
  • analysis of how jurisprudential issues can arise in everyday life
  • a wide range of cases to ground the theoretical discussion in depth discussion of the relationship of law to force, morality and politics, as well as of rights, justice and feminist jurisprudence.
The text provides a concise treatment of all the major topics usually covered in an undergraduate course on jurisprudence, and succinctly explains the arguments for and against the different approaches to the issues raised.
