    This article tackles two issues: the nature of law's judgment and what, if anything, might be said in its favour. As to the first issue, the article reminds lawyers of the obvious, namely, that law's judgment is abstract, elucidating both what this entails and why it may be thought problematic.

  2. William Lucy (2009). Persons In Law. Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 29 (4):787-804.

  7. William Lucy (1999). Understanding and Explaining Adjudication. Oxford University Press.
    This is the first book that attempts to analyze and define the metholodology and values of contemporary accounts of adjudication, which can be divided into orthodox philosophies on the one hand and heretical accounts on the other. The author offers an incisive and original analysis of how these supposedly incompatible accounts actually differ.
