Legal Theory Lexicon: Persuasive Authority

Lawrence Solum在Legal Theory Lexicon中發表新的辭條了(真的是新的):persuasive authority,他解釋了在美國法學院中常用的persuasive authority這個概念,一般而言不一定會直接用這個辭,多數是用primary and secondary authority,或是authrotitative / non-authoritative materials等等來指稱對於所使用的法律文本對於法院的拘束力與否,但是Solum教授則是以persuasive authority來稱呼法律的決定如何產生說服力,即使其所引用的法律文本對於法院沒有拘束力。這是這個概念所指涉的範圍。強烈推薦!!此外,我也非常推薦在參考文獻中的Amy Allen的文章:The Unforced Force of the Better Argument: Reason and Power in Habermas’ Political Theory, 19 Constellations 353 (2012).一併推薦給大家!!
