Why should you study Jurisprudence?
You get to study an in-depth analysis of contemporary, popular ideas, critiques of law, the legal theory and philosophy of law.
Knowledge Behind the Practice
To put it simply, Islam is a religion and practice while Islamic theology is the study behind that practice. How it all came about, its’ morality and justification. Likewise, studying Jurisprudence will help you understand what makes something a law, whether it’s a decree enforced by the authorities and how does it reflect morality.
A Bachelor in Jurisprudence will teach you the fundamental ideas of the tradition, theory and concepts of law, the role of a judge, the detailed nature of human rights and the internal organisation of law.
Assess the Morality of the Law for Yourself
Have you ever read the newspaper and wondered how some criminals get the death sentence and some don’t? And doesn’t the death sentence contradict with human rights? Shouldn’t they be given a second chance or at least put them in prison instead of just taking their lives? Jurisprudence assesses every aspect of that and allows you to question verdicts. Because of this, you get a better grasp at how law is carried out and possibly raise up the person in you to be an activist. One such non-profit organisation that is against the death sentence is Amnesty International.
