about

The Politics of Jurisprudence explores what jurisprudence is about, what it seeks to do, how it does it and - most importantly - how its conclusions can be brought to bear on everyday problems of legal practice and major social, moral or political issues. It selects material to illustrategeneral approaches to legal theory and to explore professional and political uses to which that theory has been put.
Roger Cotterrell LLD, MSc (Soc), Professor of Legal Theory, University of London, Queen Mary and Westfield College
