    According to the Association of American Law Schools directory, in the number of faculty at American law schools teaching legal ethics had increased six fold in 10 years. These themes echo many of the concerns that Kaveny has addressed in her more scholarly writings, but in a way accessible to the informed lay reader. Ethics enables us to think in moral terms and upgrades us in moral terms. Morality governs private, personal interactions.

It represents the will of the state and realizes its purpose. It is entirely plausible to regard the notion of law as bound up with that of a judicial system but what are the essential characteristics of a court and why are they important to the political organization of society? It is heteronymous being imposed upon men upon the outer life of men. Morality cannot, as a matter of fact, be divorced from politics.

    They arouse our sentiment of morality and enable us to become ideal citizens. They issue authoritative rulings which decides these Law and morality book. For example laws regarding Prohibition in India have not succeeded on account of the fact that full moral conscience of the people has not been aroused in favor of such laws. It is a collection that would suit many different kinds of legal philosophy courses. What was needed, therefore, it seemed to me, was to bring these tacit assumptions to more adequate expression than either side has so far been able to do. New material on the Chinese Canadian head tax case is also featured.

The state provides the organized machinery for the enforcement of the law. Laws which are not supported by the moral conscience of the people are liable to become dead letters. On the other hand, this collection of essays provides several original and useful treatments of various aspects of the subject.

Since Kelsen has no good reason to insist that legal theory should be free from moral consideration, he has no good reason to delimit the law in the way he does.

With all these adding up, we can see why he considers the procedure of lawmaking as the internal morality of law. Even for those who see law and freedom in mutual opposition, the whole concept of law is essentially connected with that of justice.
