Mauro Zamboni

The Policy of Law: a Legal Theoretical Framework. Oxford, 2007

K487.P65Z363 2007


In this book, Zamboni concentrates on the relationship between law and politics as viewed by the legal community. The policy of law is characterized as the stage of the law-making process when values contained in political decisions are transformed into legal concepts in order to fit the existing legal system. The space labeled as policy of law is today mainly the domain of legal actors. Consequently, the identification of a branch of the legal discipline specifically devoted to the investigation of the transformations of values into law is given: the policy of law analysis. Finally, whether and to what extent the policy of law analysis can be encompassed within the traditional legal discipline and, more particularly, as a part of jurisprudence, is explored.
