Focusing on legal structures as they developed in Western societies, Form and Function in a Legal System looks at four paradigms of the forms of a varied selection of functional legal units: legislatures and courts, statutory rules, contracts and property, legal methodologies for interpreting law, and enforcive devices such as sanctions and remedies. In contrast to the rules-based analysis made prominent by legal thinkers such as H. L. A. Hart and Hans Kelsen, the form-oriented analysis provides a new and intellectually stimulating understanding on how law can be conceptually approached.
Part I. Introduction, Basic Concepts, Definitions, and General Approach: 1. Introduction; 2. Basic concepts and definitions; 3. General approach; Part II. The Forms of Discrete Legal Phenomena: 4. Forms of institutions - legislative; 5. Forms of precepts - rules; 6. Form and content within a rule - continued; 7. Forms of nonpreceptual law - contracts and related property interests; 8. Forms of legal methodologies - statutory interpretation; 9. Forms of sanctions and remedies; Part III. The Form of a Legal System and its Operation: 10. The basic form of a legal system as a whole; 11. Cumulative and synergistic effects of legal forms - a schematic practical application.
