What is Jurisprudence?

Jurisprudence is the theory and philosophy of law with a deeper understanding of the nature of law, legal reasoning, legal systems and legal institutions.

Have you always felt that law wasn’t all about memorizing, that there was a way to scientifically analyse it? Have you always felt that even a subject like History, questions about the nature and purpose of facts could be raised? Well then, if so, you may want to consider studying Jurisprudence.

Have you always felt that law wasn’t all about memorizing, that there was a way to scientifically analyse it? Have you always felt that even a subject like History, questions about the nature and purpose of facts could be raised? Well then, if so, you may want to consider studying Jurisprudence.

Jurisprudence is the way lawyers and judges reflect on what they do and what their role is within society. This truth is reflected by the way jurisprudence is taught as part of a university education in law, where law is considered not merely as a trade to be learned (like carpentry or fixing automobiles) but as an intellectual pursuit. For those who believe that only the reflective life is worth living, and who also spend most of their waking hours working within (or around) the legal system, there are strong reasons to want to think deeply about the nature and function of law, the legal system, and the legal profession.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Jurisprudence course?

Analytical

You’re able to explain to your friends why the Ringgit drops against the UD Dollar. You’re able to tell why the price of the new iPhone continues to go up. You understand how things work, by thinking extensively about all the processes involved around them.

Creative

To be able to scientifically analyse a subject like law, you’ll need to have those creative juices well stored. To look at certain laws from various viewpoints, and question them as to what, or why, in the name of bettering those same laws, requires a creative mind.

Hard worker

If you think they exaggerated how much Marshall had to study to become a lawyer in How I met Your Mother, I’ve got some bad news for you. Lawyers need to work extremely hard, and this usually involves sleepless nights and the burning of too many midnight oils.
