I was a bit surprised but more disappointed to learn that the revised SEP entry on “The Nature of Law” by Marmor and Sarch did not treat the conceptions of law and corresponding notions of morality, reason and justice as they are inextricably woven together in the following works:
• Bobonich, Christopher. Plato’s Utopia Recast: His Later Ethics and Politics (Oxford University Press, 2002). [A brilliant discussion of Plato’s understanding of the intricate relation between law, justice, and reason.]
• Fuller, Lon. The Inner Morality of Law (Yale University Press, revised ed., 1969).
• Ripstein, Arthur. Force and Freedom: Kant’s Legal and Political Philosophy (Harvard University Press, 2009).
• Simmonds, Nigel. Law as a Moral Idea (Oxford University Press, 2007).

I should have said, as Bobonich makes clear, that in Plato’s case, the principal corresponding notion is “the fine and the good,” not simply justice.
