A Companion to the Philosophy of Law and Legal Theory: Second edition

The second edition of this outstanding Companion provides an unparalleled survey of philosophy of law and legal theory for students and specialists alike. Written by an international assembly of leading scholars, the articles have been revised throughout, and the addition of ten entirely new essays ensures that the work continues to offer the most up-to-date coverage of current thinking in legal philosophy.

Articles new to this edition cover the areas of risk, regulatory theory, methodology, overcriminalization, intention, coercion, unjust enrichment, the rule of law, law and society, and Kantian legal philosophy. Together, the essays provide an in-depth introduction to philosophical and legal theory, and a critical overview of the basic theoretical concepts, theories, topics, philosophical issues, and themes that now feature in the law school and undergraduate legal studies curricula.
