Review of Nobody's Law: Legal Consciousness and Legal Alienation in Everyday Life, written by Marc Hertogh

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

In this new addition to the substantial literature on legal consciousness, Marc Hertogh seeks to chart out an alternative approach to the dominant course set by Ewick and Silbey in their seminal work The Common Place of Law and subsequently in Silbey’s article 'After Legal Consciousness.' Hertogh proposes a 'secular' approach to legal consciousness that contrasts in several important respects from what he refers to as the dominant 'critical' approach. The overall aim of this 'secular approach' is to understand 'why people—because of their strong criticism about the justice system—turn their back to law'(p. 6).
