Arguing that good legal reasoning remains the best device by which we can ensure that judicial impartiality, the rule of law, and social trust and peace are preserved, Thomas F. Burke and Lief H. Carter present an accessible and lively text that analyzes the politics of the judicial process. Looking at the larger social and institutional contexts that affect the rule of law – including religious beliefs and media coverage of the courts – Reason in Law uses cases ripped from the headlines to illustrate its theory in real-world practice.
