Elements of procedural law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterProfessional


In law, there are always at least two sides to every issue: parties to a contract often disagree about its interpretation; heirs have different views on the meaning of a will; the public prosecutor holds the evidence to be sufficient, whereas the suspect denies the charges. Even in cases in which only less specific interests like public order are at stake (when it comes to appointing a guardian for a minor, for instance), the persons concerned will probably disagree about the way those interests tend to overrule their private objectives.keywordspublic prosecutorcourt systemalternative dispute resolutionfair triallegal standingthese keywords were added by machine and not by the authors.
