Jurists and Judges : An Essay on Influence, Paperback / softback Book

Jurists and Judges : An Essay on Influence Paperback / softback


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.
