There are some outstanding works of legal scholarship available on the World Wide Web. Here are some books and articles that I particularly enjoy, or refer to from time to time. Also, I have included a few articles that I wrote as a student -- I will not promise that they are "outstanding works of legal scholarship", but I hope they are interesting.
Peter D. Junger, Why the Buddha Has No Rights.
(Written by a law school professor of mine; this article explores the idea of "human rights"
from the perspectives of the common law, the civil law, and Buddhist ethics.)
