Sir William Jones and the Nature of Law
This chapter focuses on the two halves of Sir William Jones's life. The first part focuses on his approach to law before the move to India, concentrating on the Essay on the Law of Bailments. The second, briefer, part examines his conception of law after his appointment to the Bench in Calcutta. It shows how, even though he went on to devote a great deal of attention to classification in the natural world, unlike Peter, Jones did not apply the same approach to the analysis of the law.
