you said that legal researchers use “prognosis of future outcomes (this could be done with quantitative methods, but often legal writers just make personal guesses)”. I agree 100% with it, but I have doubts about these personal guesses. Do they really matter? Do they have to be based on legal basis or also on other basis?
For instance: in my assignment for International law, I wrote that international organisations should be forced by law to have “reasonable alternative means”, because otherwise they may just be negligent by not providing for any of them and this negligence would play in their own favor in courtrooms.
Do you find this statement “personal” and what are its basis?
