Jurists and Judges : An Essay on Influence Paperback / softback
by Neil Duxbury
Jurists and Judges examines the nature of academic influence,and particularly the influence of juristic commentary on judicial decision-making.
Focusing on three legal systems, its author argues that inter-jurisdictional comparisons of juristic influence are often simplistic and inattentive to problems of incommensurability.
The centrepiece of the study is a detailed chapter offering a nuanced history of juristic influence in England.
All academic lawyers who reflect upon the history and objectives of their profession - who, in other words, wonder what it is that they are about - will profit from reading this most informative and engaging book.
