Sammanfattning

The paper takes up a well-known constitutional subject concerning the limitations of private bills by reformulating the problem in system theoretical terms. This move allows for examining how the law as a social system carries through the task of establishing distinctions between legal/illegal in a situation where there is no precedence in the form of prior court decisions. After a short introduction to Niklas Luhman’s theory about Law as an autopoietic system, including a comparison with Jürgen Habermas’ discourse theory of the law, the analysis proceeds to the only case in which the Danish Supreme Court has ruled against a parliamentary statute, the so-called Tvind-verdict. When analyzing the verdict and its reception in legal theory, the thesis points to how the court through a line of paradoxical arguments recursively construct the foundation for its decision. While remaining unobserved, these paradoxes through their reception in legal theory becomes subject to de-paradoxification and by this the theoretical self-description of the law contributes to improving the conditions for the autopoiesis of the legal system.
