Abstract

The article describes the different legal and, in particular, extra-legal elements which underlie the creation and interpretation of legal rules, as well as the interaction of these elements and the tensions and conflicts which arise between them. Specific attention is paid to the role of political considerations and opportunistic personal or group interests, in the context of the legislative procedure, the case-law of the courts, the pleadings of attorneys and the academia. The ability of the legal system to absorb and correct defective rules resulting from undue influence of extra-legal elements during the creation and interpretation of law is assessed from the perspective of autopoiesis. In conclusion, the fundamental importance of the competence and integrity of the individuals participating in the functioning of the legal system is stressed.
