Introduction to Jurisprudence

Classical and Islamic

by M.T. Ladan

This very timely book is both a research resource and suitable for study at tertiary level. As well as classical and Islamic jurisprudence, it covers three apparently controversial, emerging fields of jurisprudence: legal pluralism and the challenges of the development of the rule of law and application of shari'a in Nigeria; philosophy and jurisprudential issues in reproductive health rights; and access to justice in environmental matters.

Other issues covered are the meaning and value of jurisprudence; yelationship between law, justice and morality; classical theories of law; characteristics and development of Islamic jurisprudence; sources of law; legal concepts; custom as a source of Islamic law; constitutionalism in Islamic law; human rights and the administration of justice under shari'a; and legal pluralism.
