Jurisprudence is basically considered to be a theory and also a philosophy of law. Individuals or even philosophers study in order to obtain an intense understanding of the nature of law, of legal reasoning, legal systems and of legal institutions.
The main questions that analytic jurisprudence try to find out are "what is law?", "what are the criteria for legal validity?", "what is the relationship between law and morality?"
The other kind of jurisprudence known as normative jurisprudence overlaps with ethical and political philosophy. The questions raised here whether on should obey the law, on what grounds law-breakers might properly be punished, the proper uses and limits of regulation.
Another kind of jurisprudence is known as Modern jurisprudence is mainly dominated by Western academics.
