Description of the research topic:

One of the most exciting fields of contemporary legal theory is the theory of adjudication. The efforts mainly focus on the problems of deciding ’hard cases’. Both philosophical and sociological problems arise at investigating the decision-making process. How can we determine the types of the legitimate reasons? What the essence of the idea of ’judicial wisdom’? From a sociological point of view we can ask the role of the extra-legal factors in the judicial process. I prefer to analyze the judicial practice in detail, thus I can offer this kind of method to any PhD students who intends to join me.
