Precedence and its Language. Praejudiz und Sprache

Erstes Kolloquium der Peter Haeberle-Stiftung an der Universitaet St. Gallen

Edited by: Peter Gomez, Markus Kotzur, Daniel Thurer, Klaus A. Vallender, Bernhard Ehrenzeller

This volume contains the lectures and discussions of the first colloquium of the Peter H?berle Foundation, founded in 2004, at the University of St. Gallen. The Foundation aims to present regular scientific events on matters related to "State and Constitutional Doctrine as a Cultural Science," which, in view of the broad scope of the subject, should have the appropriate interdisciplinary and comparative legal structure. Questions concerning the linguistic requirements for the holding of high court precedent judgements formed the central focus of the first colloquium on the subject "Precedents and Language." The articles contained in this volume are dedicated to the fundamental relationship "Law - Judgement - Language" and "Language and Judgement Proficiency of High Courts," as well as the comparative country-specific legal conditions of "Precedents and Language."
