jurisprudence – the philosophy of law

Vocabulary.com: A website you will need….

The Latin-based word jurisprudence is made up of two parts,juris “of law” and prudence which goes back to mean “knowledge.” If you study law, you study jurisprudence. You can modify it to show a specific type of law, so you will find terms such as medical, human rights, Islamic or American jurisprudence. Sometimes the word is used as a collective to mean the legal world. This is a new issue that jurisprudence will have to deal with.
