Abstract

A general feature of law is that its existence means that certain kinds of human conduct are obligatory. Sergio Cotta argued that the obligatoriness of legal norms is based on justification. Such justification, which deals with reason, rests on human structural attitude to live together. Law serves the function of co-ordinating human activity. The obligation to obey law arises from the requirements of social co-ordination. They presuppose human dignity. The authoritativeness of law depends on its ability to secure justice. Justice is necessary because persons must seek to realize and respect human goods in common.
