This work provides a rational framework for legislation. The unifying premise behind the essays is that, although legislation and regulation are the result of a political process, legislation and regulation can be the object of theoretical study. The volume focuses on problems that are common to most European legal systems and the approach involves applying to legislative problems the tools of legal theory - hence 'legisprudence'. Whereas traditional legal theory deals predominantly with the application of law by the judge, legisprudence enlarges the field of study so as to include the creation of law by the legislator. The original essays published in this collection expose and develop a range of new insights into the relationship between legislative problems and legal theory in a way which will engage and interest legal scholars throughout the world.

Excerpt from Bentham's Theory of Legislation, Vol. 2: Being Principes De Législation and Traités De Législation, Civile Et Pénale The object of this part of the Code is to describe and classify offences, and to direct attention to the circumstances which serve to aggravate or extenuate them. It is tho treatise on ailments, which naturally precedes the one on their remedies. The nomenclature of offences, which is generally accepted, is not merely incomplete: it is absolutely misleading. Unless we begin by reforming this nomenclature, we shall be driven to leave the science in the state of obscurity in which we found it. What is meant by an 'offence'? The meaning of the word varies according to the subject under discussion. If we are concerned with a system of laws already established, it is an offence to do any act which the legislature has prohibited, whether for a good reason or a bad one.

Legisprudence

This book establishes legisprudence, in contrast to jurisprudence, as a legal theory of rational law-making.

This book establishes legisprudence, in contrast to jurisprudence, as a legal theory of rational law-making. It suggests that by rejecting the common wisdom about the nature of political law-making, legislation could be improved and streamlined. Using the methods, theoretical insights and tools of current legal theory and philosophy of law in a new way, the book suggests the creation of law by legislators rather than government. Raising new questions and problems of the validity of norms, the book opens a new perspective on legitimacy of norms, their meaning and the structure of the legal system. In distinguishing legitimacy and legitimation of law, the book ventures into the philosophical roots of legal theory and suggests the articulation of a new conception of sovereignty. In shifting the emphasis to the position of the legislator and legislation, this book opens a number of new insights into the relationship between legislative problems and legal theory. Its main claim is that legislation should be justified by the legislator.
