  • Forgotten Justiceby Allan Beever

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 89.99

    Throughout much of the history of political philosophy, many of the great philosophers begin their work with an investigation of private law. Why is this? And why is the central focus of our modern concern, the state, examined so late in their works? This book suggests an answer to these and related questions. It reveals that there are two general... more...

  • Logic, Probability, and Presumptions in Legal Reasoningby Scott Brewer

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 185.00

  • Authoritiesby Nicole Roughan

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 109.99

The implications of this plurality of law can be troubling. It generates uncertainty for... more...

  • Comparative Reasoning in European Supreme Courtsby Michal Bobek

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 89.99

    The last two decades have witnessed an exponential growth in debates on the use of foreign law by courts.

By doing so, the judges are said to engage in cross-border judicial dialogues.... more...

  • Rhetoric and The Rule of Lawby Neil MacCormick

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 41.99

    When cases come before courts can we predict the outcome? Is legal reasoning rationally persuasive, working within a formal structure and using recognisable forms of arguments to produce predictable results? Or is legal reasoning mere 'rhetoric´in the pejorative sense, open to use, and abuse, to achieve whatever ends unscrupulous politicians,... more...
