Is There an Art of Judicial Reasoning at the General Court? Some Modest Comments

  • Marc van der Woude


The art of judicial reasoning is a serious and complex topic that has been the subject of numerous learned studies and commentaries. It is complex because it alludes to a wide range of disciplines: logic, hermeneutics, morality, and ethics. Seen from a wider perspective, it also relates to the sociology of law and, perhaps, the anthropology of the judicial profession.
