Example text

The judgment of a court may comprise within it a combination of discourses, corresponding to the different audiences which the judge (in fact, if not in intention) is addressing. It may contain the justification directed at the parties to the litigation. It may contain the justification which the judge would have the legal profession understand to lie behind it. At the same time, it may include other forms of justificatory discourse, directed to other kinds of audience. I doubt not, for example, that some judges are looking over their shoulders (even subconsciously, if one can do that) at the media, and providing levels of justification more appropriate for a popular audience.

Arnaud devotes a major section of his analysis of francophone sociology of law to semiotic approaches (1981, Pt. III). In them, he stresses the plurality of “legal systems”, from the official to those of the “droit vécu”. Elsewhere, he applies this to the notion of juridicity itself (1985): The most important thing is to be able, at any particular moment, to establish a matrix of ‘possible’ juridical systems, and to be able to associate each one of them with the appropriate legal conflict, whether it be a scholarly conflict (as represented by legal doctrine or precedent) or a conflict involving popular opinion or pressure groups.

1 Logical Analysis of Legal Languages: Georges Kalinowski For some, the semiotics of law is synonymous with the logic (or metalogic) of law and of its linguistic expressions. A pioneer of this approach was F. Oppenheim (1944); in recent times, Wróblewski has made substantial contributions (1983, 1989, 1990a, b). Here, attention is drawn particularly to the work of Georges Kalinowski. Kalinowski (1965, 1980, 1985, 1988, 1990; cf. Carrión-Wam 1985) has offered a systematic account of “sémiotique juridique”, modelled explicitly on the traditions of Frege (1879); Carnap (1942–1943, 1956) and Morris (1938).
