The Concept of Socialist Law
Clarendon Press, 1990 - Law - 195 pages
While political thinkers on the left are undisputably concerned with justice, they dismiss those legal institutions which, in liberal capitalist societies, have insured some minimum measure of justice in citizen's lives. Here, Sypnowich argues against this doctrine by showing that however ideal a society socialists envisage, legal institutions would be necessary to fairly adjudicate conflict between private and public interests. Each chapter addresses an issue in liberal jurisprudence to see how it would fare in a socialist theory that takes a constructive approach to law. Among the subjects covered are the rule of law, natural and legal rights, obligation, and the sources of law.
