Rate this:
Taking as its starting point a cogent analysis of the fundamentalconcepts of "legality" and the "rule of law,"Limiting Arbitrary Power undertakes a specific study of thecontents of the vagueness doctrine. Dr. Ribeiro presents an in-depthexploration of the courts' current approach, and suggests how itmay be refined in the future. In that regard, he proposes techniquesfor legislative drafting in which certainty could be enhanced withoutcompromising the flexibility required in law. Acknowledging that todate, the doctrine has yet to be been granted an autonomous status forinvalidating legislation, he also examines in detail the possiblesituations in which vagueness may become applicable under the Charter.
