Niklas Luhmann's work is studied widely by lawyers and sociologists. This introductory text explains Luhmann's theory of law to English readers.

...both the reconstructions and applications of Luhmann's theory in this book are valuable and theoretically engaging...this book also breaks the mould of recent Luhmann-reception, as it expands Luhmann's sociology to elaborate a specific theory of jurisprudence...their book constitutes a very serious advance in socio-theoretical discussions of the law. Chris Thornhill The King's College Law Journal, Vol 17, Issue 1 2006 [Nobles and Schiff] cover with admirable precision and conciseness a range of legal theoretical approaches,...They also excel in identifying the flaws and limitations with each of these approaches...the book should be welcomed as a vehicle for subjecting various theories on law to a thorough, and in some cases long-overdue, critical examination. Michael King Journal of Law and Society, Vol 33, No 4 2006
