Legal culture has become a key notion in law and society. But how to describe it? How does it emerge? Where are its roots and foundations? Which elements constitute it? Peter Mankowski provides answers by highlighting its development and structures. Rather than establishing a grand theory, his work looks at different contexts and offers at its core a comparative-anecdotal approach to a complex, multifaceted notion. Aiming to provoke thought and encourage discussion, the author depicts the societal, religious and ideological traditions surrounding legal culture, which has to be dynamic to keep apace with progress in society, science and technology. An international phenomenon, legal culture looks at individuals and their relationships to society and community. Its often media influenced public perception and own image within the legal profession are further constituent parts. In short, legal culture is colourful and mirrors the vitality of law and life.
