Abstract This paper returns to the question of how to think of justice through Teubner's recent definition of what he calls juridical justice. Juridical justice is defined as distinct from political, moral, social and theological conceptions of justice. Teubner attempts to think of an imaginary space for a juridical justice 'beyond the sites of natural and positive law' and searches for a conception of justice as the 'law's self-subversive principle'. This article reviews Teubner's conception of juridical justice and further proposes a distinction between juridical and non-juridical understandings of justice.
