  1. David Dyzenhaus (2014). Hobbes on the International Rule of Law. Ethics and International Affairs 28 (1):53-64.
    Perhaps the most influential passage on the rule of law in international law comes from chapter 13 of Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan. In the course of describing the miserable condition of mankind in the state of nature, Hobbes remarks to readers who might be skeptical that such a state ever existed that they need only look to international relations—the relations between independent states—to observe one: But though there had never been any time, wherein particular men were in a condition of warre (...)

  3. David Dyzenhaus (2012). Legality Without the Rule of Law? Scott Shapiro on Wicked Legal Systems: Critical Notice: Legality by Scott Shapiro. Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence 25 (1):183-200.
    In Legality, Scott Shapiro – a leading legal positivist – analyses the problem of a wicked legal system in a way that brings him close to natural law positions. For he argues that a wicked legal system is botched as a legal system and I show that such an argument entails a prior argument that there is some set of standards or criteria internal to law which are both moral and legal. As a result, the more successful a legal order (...)

  5. David Dyzenhaus (2011). Austin, Hobbes, and Dicey. Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence 24 (2):411-440.
    I argue that attention to Austin helps us to appreciate that there are significant continuities between his legal theory and that of contemporary positivists; hence, to the extent that Austin’s theory has defects, these are reproduced in the work of contemporary legal positivism. An historical perspective on contemporary philosophy of law thus permits one to appreciate that the basic divide in legal theory is between a tradition whose basic intuition is that law is answerable to a moral ideal of legality (...)

  9. David Dyzenhaus (2004). The Genealogy of Legal Positivism. Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 24 (1):39-67.
    This article argues that legal positivism is best understood as a political tradition which rejects the Separation Thesis—the thesis that there is no necessary connection between law and morality. That tradition was committed for some time to eliminating the conceptual space in which the common law tradition and its style of reasoning operate. A genealogical reconstruction of the tradition shows that when positivist judges are forced to operate in that space, they have to adapt their own style of reasoning to (...)

  10. David Dyzenhaus (2004). The Left and the Question of Law. Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence 17 (1):7-30.
    This article examines the work of Martin Loughlin, a prominent public lawyer who works in the leftwing tradition of political and legal theory, often associated with the London School of Economics and Political Science. It argues that tensions in Loughlin’s work exemplify certain trends within the left, the result of the left having lost faith in its positive political programme, one which was supposed to be delivered by Parliament. What remains once this faith is lost is a traditional hostility to (...)
