New Rhetorics for Contemporary Legal Discourse

First Edition

Edited by Angela Condello

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Presents a new way of thinking about the relationship between law and language
  • Invites the reader to rethink the value of legal rhetorics, understood as a broad field including argumentation, epistemology, and legal practice and experience
  • Introduces casuistry as a new perspective valuable also for civil law systems
  • Illustrates how single cases interpellate general norms and thus invites a reflection on legal normativity
