Julius Binder (May 12, 1870, Würzburg – August 28, 1939, Göttingen) was a German philosopher of law. He is principally known as an opponent of legal positivism, and for having remained as an active scholar during the 1930s in national socialist Germany who did not speak out against the prevailing government of that time.
After studying law in Würzburg with honors (1894) and Habilitation (1898), he became professor in Rostock (1900), Erlangen (1903), Würzburg (1913) and Göttingen (1919). He founded the "International Hegel Federal" and became a member of the Göttingen Academy of Sciences.
After he had applied in earlier works the concept of rights from Immanuel Kant (as in: "Legal concept and idea of law" from the year 1915), he later became a strong critic of Neokantian legal philosophy, especially the philosophy of law of Rudolf Stammler. Since the 1920s, Julius Binder -- and later along with Karl Larenz, Gerhard Dulckeit and Walther Schönfeld –- he applied a Neohegelian approach to jurisprudence in the system of the so-called "objective idealism". Binder was the academic teacher of the German legal philosopher and civil law proponent Karl Larenz. He rejected legal positivism.
Since 1890 he was a member of the Corps Bavaria Würzburg.
