Example text

By contrast to Émile Durkheim’s own account, the story of judicial communities is one based on conflict rather than consensus; law (as embodied in new legal norms) emerges through an interactive process of debate over pressing issues for which there is no single consensus.

Institutionally, courts need not fear for their continued existence, nor need judges fear for the continuation of their judicial seats, based on voting preferences of executive, legislative, military, or powerful social actors. The central point of my theory is that, in cases with a modicum of judicial independence—by contrast to cases of coercion—legal norms are generated within the context of an intellectual community.
