Overview:

This book aims to provide a brief guide to the major theories and arguments which currently dominate discussion in Jurisprudence. The book is a "key". It gives the basic idea of the subject just enough to get the student started.

The book is highly relevant for the Jurisprudence course in the LL.B. programme, as prescribed in the latest UGC Model curriculum, valid from July 2002, as it is broken up into three parts which mirror closely the way the topics in the course are broken up: Justice, Law and Rights and since the book is so short and simple students can pick up key concepts quickly and easily. For students of the LL.M. programme, as prescribed in the latest UGC curriculum, valid from July 2002, it will prove an easy and readable introductory book for the courses "Concepts of Justice" and "Theories of Rights".
