Great Resource: The Legal Theory Lexicon

I’ve been a fan of the Legal Theory Blog, put together by Professor Lawrence B. Solum at Georgetown Law, for a while. I’m taking a class on jurisprudence at the moment, and my professor has pointed me to another part of that blog that’s a great go-to resource for understanding various legal theories: the Legal Theory Lexicon.

There are currently seventy-one entries in the Lexicon, with topics from utilitarianism and deontology to the counter-majoritarian difficulty and the nature of law. The table of contents is located in the column on the right-hand side of the page. The Lexicon says it’s aimed at lower-level law students, but I think it’s a great resource for anyone interested in legal theories.

I’ve added a link to the Legal Theory Lexicon to my blogroll.
