Linguistik rechtlicher Normgenese [Linguistics of Legal Norm Formation]
Theorie der Rechtsnormdiskursivität am Beispiel der Online-Durchsuchung
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.
