Introduction: Specialized Justice

Similar to other fields of study, the law is not exempted from the creation of sub-specialization from a certain specialization, and from that sub-division comes another category. Such a scenario exists because of complex social problems — both previously ignored and recently encountered. Researches about the notion of specialized justice system have two major features. First, aside from arguing against and for specialization, scholars divert their attention in dissecting the elements of the concept, which brought them to consider the autonomy level and components of a society, the appropriate measure of geographic centralization, and the selection of methodological possibilities. And second, the separation of specialization variables is achieved after determining the strengths and shortcoming of judgment scenarios conducted by topic experts.
