Early yesterday, the world lost one of the best known and most quoted legal scholars in the United States. Ronald Dworkin was best known for the idea that the most important virtue the law can display is integrity — understood as the moral idea that the state should act on principle so each member of the community is treated as an equal.

Dworkin had graduated from Harvard Law School in 1957 and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University in England. Until he passed away on February 14th, 2013, Dworkin was a professor of law at New York University and emeritus professor at University College London.
