Legal systems express and reflect the prevailing moral, political, social and economic philosophy of the State. The Law with Philosophy degree is offered by University College Dublin.
Law and philosophy are, therefore, complementary fields of study. An understanding of law is fundamentally enhanced by a deeper knowledge of philosophical theory.
