The scientific knowledge of law aims at two interconnected things: a) obtaining a true knowledge of law and b) an identification of law’ patterns in all its manifestations.
Traditional doctrinal legal understanding is limited by the categorical apparatus and problems of epistemological nature.
On the one hand, there is a long-standing hopeless controversy about the choice between the rule of law or judicial discretion.
On the other hand, there is an endless searching of criteria for the optimal structuring of law by branches of law.
