Overview

Jurists and Judges examines the nature of academic influence, and particularly the influence of juristic commentary on judicial decision-making. Focusing on three legal systems, its author argues that inter-jurisdictional comparisons of juristic influence are often simplistic and inattentive to problems of incommensurability. The centerpiece of the study is a detailed chapter offering a nuanced history of juristic influence in England. All academic lawyers who reflect upon the history and objectives of their profession - who, in other words, wonder what it is that they are about - will profit from reading this most informative and engaging book.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Questioning the clich<'e> that legal scholars in England have not been as influential as they have elsewhere, Duxbury (law, U. of Manchester) compares the impact of academic legal opinion on the courts in the US, France, and England historically and in modern times. His essay on the dynamics of influence makes the case that the nature of such influence takes a differing form in each system. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c.
