Abstract

Because the common law faces conundrumic demands — to be both in touch with a changing society and predictable — the proper division of law-making labour between judges and legislature is controversial. It is unrealistic to: rely on neat divisions between principle (for judges) and consequentialist policy or pragmatism (for Parliament); or to consider analogical reasoning as blind to policy. Montgomery, used as a case study, invokes autonomy as a principle (not derived analogically from previous case law) to justify the informed consent doctrine.

KeywordsAutonomy; Principle; Policy; Pragmatism; Analogical reasoning; Dignity
