MORAL JUDGMENT AND LEGAL THEORY

David B. Lyons

Boston University School of Law Working Paper 00-11

Abstract

My theme is the role of moral judgment in legal theory. My thesis is that moral judgment provides an important constraint on various aspects of legal theory. I shall illustrate that thesis by discussing, first, the so-called "separation" of law and morals (Section I); secondly, legal interpretation (Section II); and thirdly, the "rule of law" ideal (Section III).
