As the title suggests, this thesis attempts a sociological analysis of the jural relation. In broad terms, it explores the sense in which relationality in human social behaviour is manifested in the concepts and conceptions which are ordinarily employed in legal thinking. It is argued that by conceiving of legal phenomena in terms of legal relationships rather than in terms of legal norms it is possible to attain an insight into the essentially social nature of such phenomena. To this end, the conceptual unit of the jural relation is taken to be the primary unit of social thinking or sociological theorising about law.
