Jurisprudence when referring to philosophy of law or legal theory is divided into two major parts: Analytic jurisprudence studies what law 'is' and normative jurisprudence studies what law 'ought to be' both of which study those attributes common to all legal systems.
Jurisprudence can also refer to case law in common law, which is the law that is established through the decisions of the courts.
The focus of analytic jurisprudence is using a neutral point of view and descriptive language when referring to the aspects of legal systems.

 Ancient History Sourcebook: Edward Gibbon: The Idea of Roman Jurisprudence
At Rome, and in the provinces, the duties of the subject, and the intentions of the governor, were proclaimed; and the civil jurisprudence was reformed by the annual edicts of the supreme judge, the praetor of the city.
The jurisprudence of the first Romans exhibited the scenes of a pantomime; the words were adapted to the gestures, and the slightest error or neglect in the forms of proceeding was sufficient to annul the substance of the fairest claim.
The books of jurisprudence were interesting to few, and entertaining to none: their value was connected with present use, and they sunk forever as soon as that use was superseded by the innovations of fashion, superior merit, or public authority.

 Narrative Jurisprudence—More Introductory Propositions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Of the other contemporary schools of jurisprudence (and we might want to think of them as perspectives or orientations, in contrast to "schools"), it seems fair to say that law and economics scholars have shown no interest in narrative, indeed, economics read most literally might be seen as a non-narrative discipline, if not anti-narrative.
Feminist jurisprudence and critical race theory, unlike law and economics and critical legal studies, have both embraced stories and narratives, so much so that Richard Delgado (University of Colorado), a critical race theorist and narrativist, at times (annoyingly) claims that narrative jurisprudence arose from the scholarly practices of critical race theorists and feminist scholars.
Given the way feminist jurisprudence and critical race theory have embraced narrative (in theory and practice), it would be possible to explore both schools of jurisprudence from the perspective of the narratives they have produced and their theoretical writings about narrative.

Austin's notion of law as orders backed by threats of sanctions, with the fundamental legitimacy of the legal system resting on a general 'habit of obedience', was so simplistic that it would have been difficult not to improve on it.
Teachers of jurisprudence in the United States largely ignored Austinian 'theory', preferring to concentrate attention on what legal rules do, can be made to do, by whom, and for what legitimate reason.
In The Concept of Law Austin's legal analysis is used not so much as a worthy opponent in debate but as a foil, by contrast with which Hart is able to construct a convincing model of law as a system of rules.

 Defamation Law: Positive Jurisprudence
The positive jurisprudence of the past fifteen years has protected freedom of expression by denying certain bodies the right to bring suit, allowing heightened criticism of the government and public figures, establishing defenses that help reduce the chilling effect on the media, and requiring sanctions proportionate to the offense.
Although freedom of expression continues to be seriously abused in many countries, this jurisprudence demonstrates an effort to increase protection of political criticism and sets a model for future international reform.
According to the standards produced at the symposium, “Criminal defamation laws are frequently abused, being used in cases which do not involve the public interest and as a first, rather than last, resort.”[58] While ordinary people cannot afford to bring prosecutions, politicians and public officials often take advantage of them.
