Jurisprudential JujutsuWorking Paper (2012)
AbstractJules Coleman’s article, “The Architecture of Jurisprudence,” 121 YALE L.J. 2 (2011), seeks to adapt legal positivism to accommodate a greater degree of normativity than conventional wisdom would allow. One might describe his effort to preserve positivism by yielding as a form of jurisprudential jujutsu. This response argues that Coleman’s jujutsu, at least as he has developed it thus far, fails to the extent law has moral legitimacy.
