Argumentative model as an instrument of realization of right to fair trial (on the example of administrative court judgements in the so-called deferral period)
Languages of publication
The argumentative model of applying law helps to provide "the right for a better quality judgment" for all citizens. A good example of such relations are decisions of administrative courts made after the Constitutional Tribunal issues a judgment which delays the date of an unconstitutional law becoming ineffective. In such situations, the court faces a conflict of values, i.e. the issue of unconstitutional relevant legal basis against the arguments behind the further applying, or refusing to apply, defective regulations in a given case. By resorting to the discursive paradigm, administrative courts can search for pro-constitutional solutions while taking into the position of a citizen in relations with administrative authorities. Although the argumentative model of arriving at solutions poses a challenge to the court, it seems to be better suited to requirements of ensuring the citizen's right to the administrative court and the standards of judiciary which follow that right, by making it easier to create an environment of a dialogue with the citizen and by creating a framework for sufficient guarantee of citizen's rights when faced by the public authorities.
