Martti Koskenniemi I In present jurisprudential orthodoxy 'Law's Empire' has
come to signify the incessant search for coherence and unity in law: the effort to
construct 'principles' collecting the disparate positive law materials under values

66 In Law's Empire, Dworkin makes succinctly clear that his conception of '
integrity' is not synonymous with 'consistency' understood as requiring that a
judge not depart from its own past decisions ((n 64) 219–24). 67 Admittedly,
