Justice and the Ethics of Legal Interpretation by Susanna Lindroos-Hovinheimo

By Susanna Lindroos-Hovinheimo

Justice and the Ethics of criminal Interpretation addresses the way it is that felony texts -laws, statutes and laws – can, and do have that means. Conventionally, criminal judgements are justified almost about language. yet due to the fact that language is often open to interpretation, and so can't absolutely justify any felony determination, there's a accountability that's inherent in criminal interpretation itself. during this e-book, Susanna Lindroos-Hovinheimo uncovers and analyses this accountability – which, she argues, isn't really restricted by way of the textual content that's being interpreted (and via its mediation, via the felony system). it isn't easily a accountability to learn good; it implies a accountability for the results of the translation in a selected scenario and with reference to these whose case is being made up our minds. eventually, it's a accountability to do justice. ?It is those elements of accountability which are conceptualised the following because the key dimensions of the ethics of felony interpretation: the textual and the situational. Drawing at the paintings of Wittgenstein, Gadamer, Derrida and Levinas, Justice and the Ethics of felony Interpretation deals a clean method of long-standing questions about language and that means in legislations. it will likely be of large price to these with pursuits in jurisprudence and felony theory.
