Procedural Justice

by Paul Morrow

Part of the The Library of Essays on Justice Series

Procedural Justice Synopsis

This collection of essays brings together the very best philosophical and legal writings on procedural justice over the last half century. Core concepts in Anglo-American jurisprudence, such as equal protection, due process, and the rule of law, are explained and criticized. The articles collected in this volume deal with the distinctive branch of justice that involves norms and processes of applying law to citizens. Authors from a variety of legal and philosophical backgrounds analyze such values as transparency, predictability, and even-handedness in law-making, law-enforcement, and adjudication. Considerable attention is also given to the complex ways in which concerns for justice in the application of the law intersect with long-standing concerns for justice in the content of law. There is also considerable discussion of how best to understand equal protection in debates about gender and racial discrimination. Authors include John Rawls, Martha Minow, Jeremy Waldron, Onora O'Neill, Joseph Raz, and Thomas Scanlon.
