U of Michigan Public Law Research Paper No. 382
A highly critical reevaluation of the work of H.L.A. Hart, Ronald Dworkin, and Joseph Raz; and in particular of the thesis – central to the views of these and most other recent legal philosophers – that "coercion" is not relevant to "law." The article also harshly assesses key features of the U.S. legal scholarship structure.
