Foundations of the Law
This book provides to those studying law a roadmap or blueprint of its foundations in order to facilitate understanding of what has been built upon them. This book includes the underlying moral or ethical theory undergirding the legal system, including notions of justice and goodness. It also provides an introduction, summary, and assessment of the economic analysis of law and a primer political theory, showing how implicit political beliefs and theories of governance have shaped our views of law and legal institutions. Additionally, there is a description of American political structures, a focus on dispute resolution theory, and a summary of modern legal history and the evolution of legal education.
