The Concept of a Legal System: An Introduction to the Theory of Legal System
Joseph Raz, Professor of the Philosophy of Law at Oxford University and Visiting Professor of Jurisprudence Joseph Raz
Clarendon Press, 1980 - Law - 245 pages
What does it mean to assert or deny the existence of a legal system? How can one determine whether a given law belongs to a certain legal system? What kind of structure do these systems have, that is--what necessary relations obtain between their laws? The examination of these problems in this volume leads to a new approach to traditional jurisprudential question, though the conclusions are based on a critical appraisal, particularly those of Bentham, Austin, Kelsen, and Hart.
