    Foundations of Indirect Discrimination Law.Tarunabh Khaitan & Hugh Collins (eds.) - 2018 - Bloomsbury.
    Indirect discrimination (or disparate impact) concerns the application of the same rule to everyone, even though that rule significantly disadvantages one particular group in society. Ever since its recognition by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1971, liberal democracies around the world have grappled with the puzzle that it can sometimes be unfair and wrong to treat everyone equally. The law's regulation of private acts that unintentionally (but disproportionately) harm vulnerable groups has remained extremely controversial, especially in the (...)

    Relational and associational justice in work.Hugh Collins - 2023 - Theoretical Inquiries in Law 24 (1):26-48.
    This Article explores the idea that the moral standards of relational or interpersonal justice can be used to lay the foundations for a theory of justice in work, rather than relying on principles of justice developed for society as a whole in philosophical theories of distributive justice. It is argued that a rich and distinctive scheme of interpersonal justice can be developed by using a method of internal critique and by focusing on two distinctive features of contracts of employment. Because (...)

  8. Base and Superstructure.Hugh Collins - 1982 - In Marxism and Law. Oxford University Press UK.
    This chapter presents three reasons why Marxists should abandon the base and superstructure model. All of them are directed towards the claim that it is possible to exclude superstructural phenomena from a concept of the material base. Plamenatz contends first that it is impossible to define the relations of production without using legal terminology, and second that the property rights involved in some relations of production depend upon legal systems for their existence. Finally, the chapter adds to these points by (...)

  9. Class Struggle and the Rule of Law.Hugh Collins - 1982 - In Marxism and Law. Oxford University Press UK.
    This chapter discusses a radical's predicament in defining revolutionary practice with regard to law, and how a solution to this predicament can be found. It argues that that the general dilemma faced by many radicals with regard to law must be approached pragmatically. There may be moments when either reformism or insurrection will yield short-term gains for the working class. These benefits must be weighed against the probable consequence of encounters with the legal system — that the foundations of the (...)

  10. Ideology and Law.Hugh Collins - 1982 - In Marxism and Law. Oxford University Press UK.
    This chapter looks at the problem of consciousness in order to analyse the Marxist explanation of how the ruling class know how to rule, and in particular how they use law as an instrument of class oppression. The first section elaborates upon the Marxist theory of ideology. It does this in order to demonstrate the plausibility of the contention that a common perception of self-interest emerges within the dominant class. It then considers the merits of such a claim when confronted (...)

  11. Law as an Instrument of Class Oppression.Hugh Collins - 1982 - In Marxism and Law. Oxford University Press UK.
    This chapter outlines the elements of historical materialism pertinent to law which have been common to various strands of the Marxist tradition. It argues that for historical materialism to be theoretically coherent, it requires a convincing description of the process by which the goals and aspirations of individuals and groups are materially determined. Crude materialism, class instrumentalism, and objections to class instrumentalism are also discussed.

    The Marxist Approach to Law.Hugh Collins - 1982 - In Marxism and Law. Oxford University Press UK.
    This chapter begins with a discussion of Marxism, which is a theory about the meaning of history. According to Marxism the meaning of history is that man's destiny lies in the creation of a Communist society where men will experience a higher stage of being amounting to the realization of true freedom. It then addresses the question of whether there is a Marxist theory of law. General theories of law are predicated on a belief in the nature of law which (...)

  13. The Prognosis for Law.Hugh Collins - 1982 - In Marxism and Law. Oxford University Press UK.
    This chapter considers the most notorious and controversial aspect of the Marxist theory of law: the persistent hostility which Marxists have shown towards law. Two closely related claims have been made by Marxists. In the first place it has been predicted that there will be no law in a Communist society. The second argument against the necessity for law goes further: not only will law disappear under Communism, but it is also contended that legal systems represent the deepest evils of (...)
