Elements and stages of potential frameworks as well as debates on heightened use of multiple-speciality legal systems comprise the central topics of this section. The chapter discusses variables of adjudicative authorities, which are divided into two: those significant to court and tribunal officials and those significant only to specialized departments. Here, adjudicative units differ according to the extent of government intervention granted on each division, the number of constituents, the compensation scheme, the appointment process and qualifications, the exclusivity of jurisdiction, and the degree of specialization. At the latter parts, the author argues that the evaluation of positive and negative sides of specialized expertise must not be anchored upon the comprehension of complex ideas, but based on the size and intricacy of certain statutory methods.

Keywords: models; multiple-speciality legal systems; variables; adjudicative units; specialization; courts; tribunals
