Jurisprudence: Theory and Context

For many students, the question has a simple answer: for them, it is a required course which they must pass in order to graduate. For students in this situation, the questions about any jurisprudence book will be whether it can help them to learn enough of the material to pass the course or to do sufficiently well in the course that their overall class standing is not adversely affected. However, even students who have such a "minimal survival" attitude towards the subject might want to know what further advantage they might obtain from whatever knowledge of the subject they happen to pick up. At the practical level, reading and participating in jurisprudential discussions develops the ability to analyse and to think critically and creatively about the law.
