Book Information


Title: Linguistik rechtlicher Normgenese [Linguistics of Legal Norm Formation]
Subtitle: Theorie der Rechtsnormdiskursivität am Beispiel der Online-Durchsuchung
Written By: Friedemann Vogel
Series Title: De Gruyter Sprache und Wissen 9

The analysis of legal texts in the context of legislation is a previously
unexplored field of research. Consequently, this study examines the formation
of legal norms using the example of the “online search”. Taking over 1000 texts
as reference material, the study illuminates the discourse actors, the semantic
struggles and the process of legal textual formulation involved in the legislation.
