This volume seeks to revive the field of law and logic, by providing an up-to-date and accessible survey of several relevant issues. Each author is an expert in his or her field, and each chapter offers an analysis of current issues, challenges, problems, limitations and/or developments.

The general contribution of this book to existing scholarship is threefold. First, it seeks to consolidate current and cutting-edge scholarship by bringing together various approaches and different theories of law and logic in one volume. Secondly, the content is presented in a way that is both stimulating for current debates in the field, and at the same time, accessible to a wider audience (particularly to readers without prior knowledge of formal logic). Finally, this book aims at highlighting the practical applicability, utility and relevance of logic for the study of law, and its application (including legal argumentation).
