• Liability
• Punishment
• Causation
• Discretion
• Precedent
• Constitutional disobedience
• The rule of law

Packed with boxed case studies, chapter discussion questions, guides to further reading, a glossary of key terms and online resources for lecturers and students, Jeffrey Brand guides the reader through ideas in an accessible way.
