9780198268253: Random Justice: On Lotteries and Legal Decision-Making

This controversial book explores the potential for the use of lotteries in social, and particularly legal, decision-making contexts. Neil Duxbury considers in detail the history, advantages, and drawbacks of deciding issues of social significance by lot and argues that the value of the lottery as a legal decision-making device has generally been underestimated.

About the Author:


Neil Duxbury is Professor of Law at the University of Manchester

Review:

`Neil Duxbury has added a sharply focused, but rich and informative, contribution to legal theoretical literature ... along the way one learns a host of fascinating and unfamiliar facts, and is introduced to bodies of scholarship the existence of which one may never have suspected. The range
of material that has been drawn together in this book is quite breathtaking.'
N. E. Simmonds, The Cambridge Law Journal

`Duxbury's Random Justice is stimulationd throughout and wonderfully researched...his book has encouraged me to reflect more on the special sort of fairness that is present in randomization, and what all this might reveal about reason and the rule of law.'
Bruce Chapman University of Toronto Law Journal Vol 50 2000

`History remembers books which make a real challenge to our thinking, and this is such a book.'
David Jabbari, Legal Studies

`this is a fascinating work and a piece of great scholarship.'
David Jabbari, Legal Studies

`the author has, once again, succeeded in demonstrating the rigour and breadth of his scholarship'
David Jabbari, Legal Studies

`the book is an excellent resource for the growing body of academics interested in chance and lotteries'
Barbara Goodwin, THES

`Among legal academics, Duxbury's explicit challenge to the supremacy - or hubris - of reason should spark some fireworks'
Barbara Goodwin, THES
