Word of the week: Jurisprudence
Source: Word of the week: AUTHORITY
The word jurisprudence is derived from a Latin maxim as referred ‘jurisprudentia’ but owes its origin to Rome. It is a combination of two latin words ‘juris’ which means ‘law’ and ‘prudence’ which means ‘knowledge’ or ‘skill’. Therefore jurisprudence is the study, knowledge, skill and theory of law.
