The legislature of the parliament makes law, as they are the ones that are elected by the people so they have the mandate of the people to do so.

1. Statutory interpretation is hard work. Postmodern theorists have demonstrated that language is indeterminate and that texts are innately vulnerable to the unsettling play of deconstructive forces.1 In the eyes of postmodern theorists, words have no ‘essential’ meanings; instead, words are constantly shifting variables with the capacity to impede communication and derail the interpretive process. This raises an obvious question—one that is ignored by the lion's share of postmodern theorists. If language is indeterminate and unstable, why does it work so well?2 Why is language so effective in conveying information? As Peter Hogg once asked, if language is inescapably indeterminate, how is it that people manage to ‘keep dental appointments and stop at stop signs’?3 My own view is that the degree of interpretive consistency and communicative success that we observe in the real world does not imply that language is more determinate than postmodernists suggest. Instead, it suggests that t...

1. Judge made laws are ideally cited within the venue or district where they were made. For instance, if a case is in the Ninth Federal District, it might not be best to cite a decision in the Fourth Federal District. The court clearly states legal principles and makes them part of the final decisions arrived at when certain parts of the law are applied to individual cases. Unlike the laws made by the legislature, judge made laws aren't fully developed. They're always being tweaked. As a result, they're often easily changed. Every case used as a precedent for a judge made law clearly defines the facts of the dispute and how the judge reached a final decision. For the record, it's possible for a case to have aspects that are favored by some judges and disfavored by other judges. In the U.S., since the legal system favors a common lawsystem, the decisions of higher courts are binding on lower courts that handle cases with similar facts and issues. The concept of judge made laws works by...

1. Stare decisis (/ˈstɛərridɪˈsaɪsɪs,ˈstɑːreɪ/) is a legal principle by which judges are obligated to respect the precedent established by prior decisions. The words originate from the phrasing of the principle in the Latin maxim Stare decisis et non quieta movere: "to stand by decisions and not disturb the undisturbed". In a legal context, this means that courts should abide by precedent and not disturb settled matters.The principle can be divided into two components: 1. A decision made by a superior court, or by the same court in an earlier decision, is binding precedent that the court itself and all its inferior courts must follow. 2. A court may overturn its own precedent, but should do so only if a strong reason exists to do so, and even in that case, should be guided by principles from superior, lateral, and inferior courts. The second principle, regarding persuasive precedent, reflects the broad precedent guidance a court may draw upon in reaching all of its decisions.

1. Priors can elevate a crime that is ordinarily an infraction to a misdemeanor, or a crime that is ordinarily a misdemeanor to a felony. For example, a defendant’s first driving on a suspended license charge might be an infraction, but second and subsequent charges will likely be misdemeanors. Similarly, a defendant’s first driving under the influence (DUI) offense is typically a misdemeanor, but a third or fourth DUI offense within a specified time (usually 10 years) is a felony in most states. Sometimes, having a prior conviction can turn an otherwise innocent activity into a crime. For example, most states and the federal government make it a crime for people previously convicted of any felony to possess a firearm. Prosecutors are generally allowed to dismiss prior conviction allegations, often as part of plea bargains.
