Research group on the Theory of Legal Interpretation

Members: Professor Seppo Sajama, professor Katja Lindroos, senior lecturer Maija Aalto-Heinilä, lecturer Niko Soininen

The research group on the theory of legal interpretation is an informal and interdisciplinary network of UEF scholars. Despite our differing backgrounds (philosophy, commercial law, environmental law) we share an interest in questions concerning the theory of legal interpretation, such as: What is the nature of interpretation in the first place? What is it that we interpret when we interpret legal norms? What kinds of canons of interpretation are there? What special difficulties arise in the interpretation of contracts, constitutions, or EU law? The group has organized seminars and workshops and is currently preparing a book manuscript about the canons of legal interpretation.
