The essay analyses the concept of legal certainty, questioning the widespread assumption that legal certainty is a matter of predictability. Certainty, the essay argues, is not a matter of sheer predictability of the outcomes of judicial decisions, but rather a matter of correct individuation of the legal consequences of a given case. With this clarification in mind, the essay then goes on with a tentative scrutiny of the place of legal certainty in the theory and practice of the Constitutional state.

Abstract

The essay analyses the concept of legal certainty, questioning the widespread assumption that legal certainty is a matter of predictability. Certainty, the essay argues, is not a matter of sheer predictability of the outcomes of judicial decisions, but rather a matter of correct individuation of the legal consequences of a given case. With this clarification in mind, the essay then goes on with a tentative scrutiny of the place of legal certainty in the theory and practice of the Constitutional state.
