Legal Logic? Or can we do without?

A. Soeteman

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


In this paper the thesis is argued that there is no need for a special legal logic to deal with the defeasibility of legal arguments. An important argument for this thesis is that legal judgements ask for a complete justification and that such a complete justification requires a deductively valid argument. © 2004 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
