      Criminal "Justice" Demanding Certainty in an Uncertain World by Cullen Couch “The criminal justice system is characterized by extraordinary discretion—over the definition of crimes (legislatures can criminalize as much as they wish), over enforcement (police and prosecutors can arrest and charge whom they wish), and over funding. Certainty is perfect knowledge that has total security from error, or the mental state of being without doubt. Objectively defined, certainty is total continuity and validity of all foundational inquiry, to the highest degree of precision. Something is certain only if no skepticism can occur.

      Therefore this seems to prove that the UK’s adherence to contract certainty far outweighs the basic principles of justice, which leads one to believe that notion of utmost good faith is an exception to the rule of upholding the certainty of contract, especially in respect to contracts that are made by companies.   Young people will be the ones to start the revolution, and it could all start with reading a few great social justice books for young adult and middle grade readers. These 20 books (half YA and half middle grade) are the perfect social justice reads because they pack strong messages and engaging stories/characters.

        The centrality of legal certainty to the thinking of continental jurists is not well appreciated by American academics captivated by legal indeterminacy. (20) For the great German legal philosopher, Gustav Radbruch, legal certainty--along with justice and policy--was one of only three fundamental pillars of the very idea of law. Instead of the usual apologetic treatment found in legal doctrine, linked to the determinacy, immutability or predictability of norms, this book treats legal certainty innovatively, holistically and in depth. Using a method at once analytical and functional, Professor Ávila examines the structural.
