Addressing both public and private law, this book shows how the philosophy of law is related to concrete and actual legal practice. Part One consists of readings from philosophers representing eight influential types of jurisprudence: natural law theory, positivism, constructivism, consequentialism, critical legal studies, feminist theory, practice theory, and 'new' natural law theory. In Part Two the auhtors present a variety of cases that allow students to apply the theories of Part One to the actual practice of law.show more
