Building a Law-Abiding Society: Taking Public Views About Morality and the Legitimacy of Legal Authorities into Account When Formulating Substantive Law (with J. Darley), 28 Hofstra Law Review 707-739 (2000)

Abstract

This Article argues that psychologists can make an important and fundamental contribution to the law by articulating the possibility of a law-abiding society, and by showing how such a society can be created and maintained. Such a contribution involves the application of psychological models of social values to our conceptions of how to effectively maintain the rule of law.
