Savannah Law School (SLS) Assistant Professor Joseph D’Agostino has published a legal philosophy article titled Law’s Necessary Violence. From the article’s Abstract, “To promote the best understanding of the world, the concepts of law and legal obligation cannot overflow the distinguishing ends and means of political legal authorities, and their distinguishing means is legitimated physical coercion applied through a legal system.”
The article is over one hundred pages in length and surely a labor of love. However, it’s also a worthy read and you encouraged to access it using this link.
Professor D’Agostino teaches Torts, Evidence, and Administrative Law at SLS. He maintains interests in contracts, international business law, and legal philosophy. He joined the faculty at SLS with a truly illustrious resume and background.
Professor D’Agostino thanked the Law School for their support in his drafting of this article. The SLS community would like to show its gratitude to you, Professor, for making a positive impact in the legal community. Please be sure to congratulate Professor D’Agostino next time you see him on campus!
