Egy skót bírói döntés jogszociológiai elemzése
In this essay I have attempted to show the Scottish tradition of criminal law and attitudes of legal profession and the whole Scottish society about the crimes trough one case. This criminal case was held before the Scottish criminal appeal court in 1989, where for the irst time, a man could be guilty under the Scottish law of raping his wife while the couple lived together. This was a point that could show the lexibility of Scottish law while the English law was either unwilling or unable to make a change.
This case shows us that the judges in Scotland claim to represent the social attitudes through legal devices but this representation is not almost uncountable because the courts attempt to operate within the basically conservative traditions. Parallel of the above mentioned the courts try to use the alternative histories of law and the voices of practical lawyers, legal doctrines through the conlicting interpretations in order to make right decisions.
