Scrutinise law in the context of human thought and the history of ideas as well as in its social, cultural and political context.
Jurisprudence provides a focus on the general principles of law, the operation and function of law in society and the comparative study of law across history, cultures and nations.
It is especially suitable if you are interested in interdisciplinary studies of law, or have an interest in the principles and operations of legal systems or want to expand your knowledge of interdisciplinary research methodology.
Postgraduate study in jurisprudence is suitable for barristers, judges, magistrates and solicitors as well as non-legal professionals such as academics, administrators, advocates, jurists, researchers and teachers.
