Law

Rechtssicherheit durch Rechtswissenschaft

Herausgegeben von Jan C. Schuhr

[Legal Certainty (Rechtssicherheit) through Jurisprudence]

An attempt to translate the German expression "Rechtssicherheit" results in a list of problems: predictability of actions and legal decisions, legal certainty, legal security, stability of the law, rule of law and by law (as opposed to men), sound legal protection. These concepts all raise one question: How and what can legal scholarship, jurisprudence and legal dogmatics do to help?

History

Auf der Suche nach der Ökonomie

Historische Annäherungen

Herausgegeben von Christof Dejung, Monika Dommann und Daniel Speich Chassé
