Abstract

This essay examines comparability of criminal defense casework in three different legal contexts on the basis of the phenomenological concept "positionality." Originally introduced by Helmuth Plessner for the study of how the body relates to its environment, positionality has evolved into a sociological resource called on to explain various political, ideological, and ethical phenomena. In this essay, positionality is employed to compare and contrast criminal defense practices in the USA, Germany, and the UK.
