Between efficiency and effectiveness


  • Sergey V. Tretyakov

    () (National Research University Higher School of Economics)


The main idea of this paper is that some sort of legal theory dealing with the law’s social impact is an indispensable element of the legal profession in the time of late modernity. Can legal theory pro-vide an adequate understanding of the social context of the application of law, relying solely on in-ternal resources? If not, which interdisiplinary discourse is the best and why?
