Jurisdictional Due Process and Political Theory, 39 University of Florida Law Review 293 (1987)


This paper is about the link between due process and political
theory, and more specifically, about the link between a particular sort
of due process issue and political theory. The goal is to add to the
agenda an important legal issue that has not captured its fair share
of philosophical attention. As this symposium demonstrates, procedural
due process analysis has benefited greatly from the attention
of legal philosophers. Its foundations are far clearer and more interesting
than they would be if left to straight doctrinal analysis. The time
has come for legal philosophers, and philosophically inclined lawyers,
to shine some comparable light on the foundations of jurisdiction.
