    The Jury Between the Civil and the Criminal Law.Paul Robertshaw - 2000 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 13 (3):251-278.
    This article comprises two case studies of a ``problem'' within the Anglo-Welsh legal process of jury trial. In that tradition, the judge not only instructs on the law to be applied by the jury, s/he also ``summarises'' the evidence after counsel have already done so. This summarising is largely unconstrained by appellate control. The ``problem'' that the two cases present is that they were trials of ``civil'' issues in which the subject matter is also categorised as ``criminal''. Where such overlaps (...)

    Sentencing Parricides: Text and Context; Rhetoric and Silence.Paul Robertshaw - 2003 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 16 (1):1-14.
    This article considers the sentencing of two eighteenth centuryparricides, one committed by a daughter, the other by a son. In eachcase the sentencing remarks are first subject to generic analysis,derived from the work of Rukiya Hasan and Susan Urmston Philips. Withinthose thematic structures there is a traditional rhetorical analysis. Bycombining both types of analysis one can demonstrate the salientfeatures of each set of judicial remarks. The focus of the article thenshifts from these texts to their contexts, and reveals features in (...)

    Logos and Pathos in Sentencing Dr William Parry.Paul Robertshaw - 2004 - International Journal for the Semiotics of Law - Revue Internationale de Sémiotique Juridique 17 (1):27-51.
    The focus of this article is on the sentencing remarks concerning a sixteenth century Welsh traitor. Before analysis of the logos track, thematic structure and the surface tropes of these remarks, the origins of this genre from 1307 are examined, demonstrating their formal drafted style and the extemporised style that fully emerged in 1600, which was presaged in the remarks examined here. The discussion that follows the analysis is in five sections which cover the external impacts on this genre; on (...)
