Abstract

The objective of this article is to show three problems that affect the clarity of the language of judicial decisions in two areas: measure protection and the lack of service. The first is the absence of a fixed structure of reasoning that orders the foundation of the decision. The second is the absence of a function assigned to the recitals that make up the sentence. The third is the absence of explanation of the techniques of interpretation and integration of the law that are used by the judge.
