Abstract

Legal Theories: In Principle takes a practical approach to the study of legal theory. Setting out the principles involved, the text also aids a student's understanding with the inclusion of tutorial-type questions and analysis.

Legal Theories: In Principle presents various methods used for the teaching and learning of legal theory. The text examines the use of theory in the Australian legal environment, in particular by demonstrating how certain theories are explicitly or implicitly used by the courts to frame judgments. It also explores a number of the major theoretical and jurisprudential movements. One significant feature of this text is its emphasis on exploring and explaining the methods used by theorists as well as the content of those theories.

Legal Theories: In Principle is a part of the Lawbook Co. award winning In Principle Series. The series offers a concise presentation of complex concepts and principles in key areas of legal study.
