public law
Abstract:Uncertainties or doubt about legal rights and duties are best cleared by authoritative judicial pronouncements upon the existence and scope of the rights and duties of the parties. Although a declaration lacks the mandatory coercive qualities of an executory judgment it is nevertheless very useful, especially in the field of public law, where coercive reliefs may not be available or may be difficult to obtain or enforce. Sections of the article: Introduction - Authority of the courts to reader declaratory judgments - Cases for which a declaration is appropriate - Limitations on declaration - Judicial discretion. Ref.
