It is, or should be, primarily about fidelity to law. However, law-abidingness in
judicial method is not the standard fare of judicial ethics codes and handbooks,
which tend to concentrate on pointing out that judicial officers should not publicly
support political causes, just as they should not frequent hotel bars, or fall asleep
on the bench. These matters are of some importance, but this is largely because
they relate to more fundamental judicial matters, in particular, to the judicial duty

The legal reasons alternative is a different story. It understands the judicial duty to
uphold the law to require judges to act on reasons provided by the law, and not
on other reasons, even when exercising discretion. The legal reasons alternative

consequently fits easily within a conception of the rule of law that understands the
law in this way. In principle, judicial discretion can be reconciled with the rule of
law ...

dition of judicial integrity that had developed in Great Britain over the course of
many centuries. That tradition placed a heavy emphasis on the judicial duty to
follow the law in every case, even when the judge considered the law unjust or ill

judicial ideal that required judges to apply the law, and only the law, in every
judicial decision. Judges recognized that this is a lot harder than it may seem. It is

mind to determine what is fair and just in respect of the matters under
consideration'.129 The latter meaning was much wider in scope than the order of

observed Fletcher Moulton L] in 1906, 'there must be the exercise of some right or
duty to decide in order to provide scope for a writ of certiorari at Common Law.'

10Cf Philip Hamburger, Law and Judicial Duty (Cambridge, MA: Harvard
University Press, 2008). The historical division between common law courts and
equity courts in England (where the Court of Chancery provided additional
remedies in certain situations if the common law courts failed to do so) illustrates
the longstanding claim by theories of justice (eg Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics (
Indianapolis: Hackett Publishing, 1999), at 1137b– 1138a) that equitable
interpretation and ...

My task is not a simple one since Shapiro's puzzle is intimately related with
several complex problems that, in legal philosophy, are both central and very
controversial. Whatever solution to the puzzle we come up with, it must be
compatible with a theory dealing with problematic issues such as the
methodology of legal theory, the logical status of normative statements, the
judicial duty to apply the law and the relation between moral and legal duties.
Shapiro's book has the merit of ...
