The Language of Jury Trial

A Corpus-Aided Analysis of Legal-Lay Discourse

Author: C. Heffer

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 0230502881

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 253

Drawing on representative corpora of transcripts from over 100 English criminal jury trials, this stimulating new book explores the nature of 'legal-lay discourse', or the language used by legal professionals before lay juries. Careful analyses of genres such as witness examination and the judge's summing-up reveal a strategic tension between a desire to persuade the jury and the need to conform to legal constraints. The book also suggests ways of managing this tension linguistically to help, not hinder, the jury.

Civil Justice, Privatization, and Democracy

Author: Trevor C.W. Farrow

Publisher: University of Toronto Press

ISBN: 144269503X

Category: Law

Privatization is occurring throughout the public justice system, including courts, tribunals, and state-sanctioned private dispute resolution regimes. Driven by a widespread ethos of efficiency-based civil justice reform, privatization claims to decrease costs, increase speed, and improve access to the tools of justice. But it may also lead to procedural unfairness, power imbalances, and the breakdown of our systems of democratic governance. Civil Justice, Privatization, and Democracy demonstrates the urgent need to publicize, politicize, debate, and ultimately temper these moves towards privatized justice. Written by Trevor C.W. Farrow, a former litigation lawyer and current Chair of the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice, Civil Justice, Privatization, and Democracy does more than just bear witness to the privatization initiatives that define how we think about and resolve almost all non-criminal disputes. It articulates the costs and benefits of these privatizing initiatives, particularly their potential negative impacts on the way we regulate ourselves in modern democracies, and it makes recommendations for future civil justice practice and reform.

Rubaschow, Mitglied der "alten Garde" eines revolutionären Staates, wird eines Nachts im eigenen Land und im Auftrag der eigenen Partei verhaftet. Der einstige Volkskommissar bleibt zwar auch in der Gefängniszelle seinen politischen Grundsätzen treu, allmählich wird ihm aber bewußt, welche Schuld er im Dienste der Weltrevolution auf sich geladen haben könnte und daß der Zweck womöglich nicht jedes Mittel heiligt. Um moralische Kategorien geht es seinen innerparteilichen Gegnern allerdings nicht: Angeklagt wegen oppositioneller Gesinnung und Verschwörung, widersetzt Rubaschow sich zunächst den haltlosen Vorwürfen, bis sein Widerstand in unbarmherzigen Verhören gebrochen wird. – "Sonnenfinsternis", Koestlers Abrechnung mit dem Stalinismus und jeder Form von politischem Totalitarismus, wurde in über dreißig Sprachen übersetzt und gilt als einer der bedeutendsten politischen Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts.
