Juridica International 2018 issue discusses current developments in legal interpretation
Juridica International 2018 issue „Current Developments in Legal Interpretation“ offers broad-based analysis of various modern legal problems and their solution from a wealth of perspectives.
„Although the legislator’s goal is to ensure legal regulation is as precise as possible, there are always some gaps that need to be filled through either analogy or interpretation. Also, case law and the interpretations of legal professionals have an important role to play in the understanding of legal regulation and in application of the law. Alongside analysis of the bottlenecks found in the current law, historical experience should not be overlooked either. The dissection of a legal situation in the past, one long forgotten, may offer us an unexpected and necessary solution for applicable legislation,“ writes Professor Gaabriel Tavits in the editorial column.
The authors of the current issue are Liina Reisberg, Julia Laffranque, Mario Rosentau, Olja Kivistik, Marju Luts-Sootak, Karin Visnapuu, Hannes Veinla, Andres Vutt, Margit Vutt, Gaabriel Tavits, Yana Simutina, Kristjan Kask, Liisa Tarkus, Alina Harkovskaja, Raul Narits, Silvia Kaugia, Iris Pettai, Tiina Mikk, Karin Sein, Erkki Hirsnik, Marje Allikmets, Maret Kruus, Rainis Int, Ants Nõmper and André Dias Pereira.
