Unique summer project /Swiss legal system corruption



























Consider the following questions. How many
can you answer correctly, true or false, based on theoretical knowledge of
Swiss law?



a)
an accuser need not answer
questions posed by the defence, either before or at trial;

b)
the prosecution need not appear
at trial;

c)
the judge can substitute for
the prosecution, accusing a defendant of a crime not charged by the district
attorney;

d)
a defence lawyer can withdraw
from a case just prior to trial, conceal defence evidence, and threaten his own
client with “punishment” if the client refuses an out of court settlement.



The answer to all of the above is “true” in
actual practice.



The explanation? The legal system is subject to
heuristics. (a la "Thinking Fast and Slow, D. Kahneman). Swiss law student or psych-,
sociology grad student with well-developed German writing skills sought to
co-develop a compendium of heuristics that apply to the legal system in
Switzerland, explaining how theoretical law is supplanted by psychology and
corruption.
