This chapter is a study of procedures: what they do and how they fit into a coherent picture. In their simplest form, procedures are the steps leading to a decision; they are the means for reaching a decision or other result. In a modern legal system, the range of legal decisions is considerable, but one common feature is that each tries to advance certain ends and goals. Legal decisions are in that sense purposive, and so the main point of procedures is to serve those purposes.

Keywords:   procedures, legal system, legal decisions
