The Elements

  • Teresa M. Thorp


Chapter 4 scopes out a preliminary set of uniform schema guidelines as constitutional postulates and refers to them as the “elements”. It limits its discourse to those constitutional “elements” found by systematic review. The outcome of every potential legal case is not determinate, but this is not to say that all aspects of the law are indeterminate. Amongst other things, the “elements” stabilise the legal system, make certain process aspects transparent to users and help to make the law function.
