Rebirth of Reason

"The proper functions of a government fall into three broad categories, all of them involving the issues of physical force and the protection of men's rights: the police, to protect men from criminals - the armed services, to protect men from foreign invaders - the law courts, to settle disputes among men according to objective laws.
These three categories involve many corollary and derivative issues - and their implementation in practice, in the forms of specific legislation, is enormously complex. It belongs to the field of a special science: the philosophy of law."
--Ayn Rand,
"The Nature of Government",
The Virtue of Selfishness

Welcome to RoR Law. A place where practising lawyers, law students, legal academics and any other interested individuals can come together, joyously, rationally and benevolently to discuss not only legal philosophy (which is to say, jurisprudence) from an Objectivist and libertarian standpoint, but broader issues such as court judgements, practicing law under the present legal system, the influence of legal positivism on academics and its effects on law students; and lighter-hearted subjects such as the portrayal of laywers in the media and anything else that you think relevent to Objectivism and the law.
