The presence of absence : everyday conditions of practicing law

Arvidsson, Matilda LU (2007) In Från Schlyters lustgård: rättshistoriska uppsatser2001-01-01+01:002015-01-01+01:00 p.3-30
Abstract
The article is an auto-ethnographical account of the practice law in the mundane everyday life at Lund District Court, Sweden. The focus is on the spatial and organizational every day conditions of practicing law in the office space. It researches the practice of law, in the office part of the court, as a human practice in a constant call between de-contamination from personal identity and a re-call of that lost subjectivity as the judge is turning words into law by signing the document by hand, with his own name, and in his own personal hand writing.
