Nicola Lacey, Professor of Law

Feminism and the Tenets of Conventional Legal Theory


Kurzfassung der Herausgeber

Portrait des AutorsThis paper explores the argument that there is something not about particular laws or sets of laws, but, more generally, about the very structure or methodology of modern law, which is hierarchically gendered. It sets out an inclusive conception of feminist legal theory, and goes on to consider the implications of one version of feminist legal theory - 'difference feminism' - for the tenets of conventional legal scholarship and theory. These tenets are the neutral framework of legal reasoning; law's autonomy and discreteness; law's neutrality and objectivity; law's centrality to the constitution of social relations; law's status as a system of enacted norms or rules; law's unity and coherence; and law's rationality. The feminist challenge to each of these tenets is sketched, and the paper goes on in each case to consider the relationship between feminist and other critical approaches and the difficulties raised by the feminist analysis.
