Legal Regulation Flashcards

By the time cases reach the courts those accusers are sometimes state officials . Some legal methods do make area for private prosecutions. But such prosecutions may be discontinued or taken over by state officers . Those officials can also continue proceedings in the face of private opposition, even when the opposition comes from these wronged by \(D\). In this way, the state exercises a form of management over felony proceedings that is absent from authorized proceedings of other forms . It is feasible to imagine a world in which the regulation gets its method—in which folks uniformly chorus from felony conduct.

Ex hypothesi, this does nothing to safe independence. So it’s not one thing that can be accommodated by the Kantian view . Some hold a combined view that combines components of these considered above (Alexander and Ferzan 2009, three–19; Simester and von Hirsch 2011, 3–18; Tadros 2016, 159–172). One way to assemble such a view is by distinguishing between main and secondary features. Primary capabilities are those who, when all else is equal, we’ve most cause to need the law to fulfil.

Failing that, we have cause to need criminal regulation to call thieves and murderers to account, and to punish those who don’t have any sufficient account to offer. In response, one would possibly attempt to refine the operate that is distinctive of felony legislation. Perhaps criminal regulation’s function is to answer public wrongs , whereas the operate of civil legislation is to answer private wrongs. What we must always make of this proposal relies upon on what a public mistaken is (Lamond 2007; Lee 2015; Edwards and Simester 2017). To make progress, we can distinguish between primary duties—like duties not to rape or rob—and secondary duties—like duties to answer, or suffer punishment, for rape or theft. We incur duties of the latter sort by breaching duties of the previous. The powers and permissions talked about thus far assist \(D\)’s accusers put collectively their case against \(D\).
