Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Philosophy of Law is usually divided into three main branches:
Dogmatic, Ethical and Historical.1 However, we should add a fourth
branch to the three: Sociological.
The dogmatic branch means the pure principle of the law, without any
reference to historical origin, development, validity, or ethical significance.
The ethical branch examines the ethical significance of the law
which is concerned with the theory of justice and its relation to law.
The historical branch deals with the general principle coveting the
origin of the law and its developments.
The sociological branch means that a good practice of law should
encompass human nature and sociology of law.
