Abstract:

Is legal reasoning rationally persuasive, working within a discernible structure and using recognisable kinds of arguments? Does it belong to rhetoric in this sense, or to the domain of the merely 'rhetorical' in an adversative sense? Neil MacCormick tackles these questions to provide a comparative analysis of legal reasoning.
