Abstract and Keywords

Even though scholars in the disciplines of legal justice and organizational justice both maintain that they investigate justice, even a casual reading of the scholarship and application of “justice,” in these disciplines indicates that the two set of scholars are not speaking the same language. The purpose of the paper is to expose the backgrounds, development, assumptions, and approaches of each of legal and organizational justice. Moreover, the chapter provides guidance for organizational justice scholars and researchers to better use, develop, and integrate legal justice into their research. Finally, it provides insights for future research integrating both areas of justice scholarship.

Keywords: legal justice, justice, natural law, legal assumptions, legitimacy, justice types, justice as fairness, expert witnesses
