Hart on Discretion

The Harvard Law Review contains a new essay on discretion by the late, great, H.L.A. Hart. The essay has apparently long been thought lost and never been published before. The essay was discovered by law student Geoffrey Shaw, who has written an article analyzing it. (Not that I deserve any credit, but I’m pleased to say that Shaw was a student of mine when he was in college.) There is also a short commentary by Professor Nicola Lacey.

This is likely the first and last H.L.A. Hart article whose publication will be announced on a blog.
