(p.101) 3 Addressing Necessary Shifts in Equality Jurisprudence
Adolescence, Discrimination, and the Law

Roger J. R. Levesque

NYU Press

This chapter begins to develop a refocused equality jurisprudence. It provides a foundation for the next chapter by addressing the government's broad role in inculcating values and in shaping people's dispositions. The analyses gain significance given the prevailing view that the government must resist such intrusions. Although admittedly framed to limit the government's role in our lives, the legal system actually evinces important contrary impulses. These contrary impulses must become key components of equality jurisprudence. They provide the rationales for the legal system's power to harness developmental science's insights and foster the structuring of institutions in ways that alleviate prejudice, discrimination, and inequity.

Keywords:   equality jurisprudence, government, legal system, values, disposition
