Legal Theory

Abstract [en]

This volume presents 20 articles on various theoretical aspects of law. Legal Theory, or as it is sometimes labelled, Analytical Jurisprudence, is a topic which has been attracting a lot of interest from Scandinavian lawyers for a long time. This tradition has generated a vast amount of literature and is reflected in a continuous debate concerning various methodological and ontological aspects of the law. The articles have been arranged under the subheadings On the Nature of Law, On Legal Concepts and Legal Principles, On Legal Reasoning, Legal Rules and the Development of the Legal System, and Perspectives on Legal Science. Taking into account the richness of the material it is the conviction of the editors that this volume provide interesting material for further discussions concerning legal theory also outside the Scandinavian countries.
