Cíle předmětu
The whole course deals with the question of judicial decision making or making of law. It particularly examines the present period in Central Europe and looks into the historical period, mainly socialism in Czechoslovakia (for the comparison of sources of law closely connected to judge´s work). Its aim is to approximate the role of the judge in the law making in civil procedure in particular, and to answer the question whether today the judge is still the mouth of the law, as Mostesquieu defines it in his concept. The role of case law, the importance of justifying judicial decisions or the view of legal realists on a new model of judiciary role will be also outlined. The presented topic concludes with a reflection on the role of the judge in the deconstruction of justice in the postmodern period, asking whether the fair decisions of judges must always be guided by the rule.
Výstupy z učení
At the end of the course, students should be able to:
- understand and explain what is the role of judge in decision making process, what aspects need to be considered;
- work with information on the binding nature of judicial decisions;
- understand what is the “scope of legislation“ for judges and legislators?;
- make reasoned decisions about what the thorough reasoning of court decisions should include;
- make deductions based on acquired knowledge about the allocation of the place of judicial law-making in the present and in the near future, also with a view to defining a new model of Hermes judge;
