This seems to be a classic interpretative issue, but it has legal implications. These two options (the textual and the contextual) are already mentioned in the Talmudic literature, which discusses which interpretation should be adopted from a halakhic-legal perspective. The Talmud cites a Tannaitic

In: Brill Research Perspectives in Family Law in a Global Society
This collection, written by legal scholars from around the world, offers insights into a variety of topics from children’s rights to criminal law, jurisprudence, medical ethics and more. Its breadth reflects the fact that these are all elements of what can broadly be called ‘law and society’, that enterprise that is interested in law’s place or influence in diffferent aspects of real lives and understands law to be simultaneously symbol,
philosophy and action. It is also testament to the broad range of vision of Professor Michael Freeman, in whose honour the volume was conceived.
The contributions are divided into categories which reflect his distinguished career and publications, over 85 books and countless articles, including pioneering work on children’s rights, domestic violence, religious law, jurisprudence, law and culture, family law and medicine, ethics and the law, as well as his enduring commitment to interdisciplinarity.
The volume begins with work on law in its philosophical, cultural or symbolic realm (Part I: Law and Stories: Culture, Religion and Philosophy), including its commitment to the normative ideal of ‘rights’ (Part II: Law and Rights), and then offfers work on law as coercive state action (Part III: Law and the Coercive State) and as regulator of personal relationships (Part IV: Law and Personal Living). It continues with reflections on the importance of globalisation, both of law and of ‘doing family’ in personal and public life (Part V: Law and International Living) before closing with two reflections on Michael Freeman’s body of work generally, including one from Michael himself (Part VI: Law and Michael Freeman).


This article provides a systematic and critical account of EU information systems in the area of freedom, security and justice, with the aim of establishing the contemporary links between information sharing and criminal law in the EU and of evaluating its impact on individuals. To this end, Part 1 offers a systemisation and critical assessment of the essential elements of the pertinent systems (ECRIS, ECRIS-TCN, Prüm, PNR, Europol, SIS, Eurodac, VIS, EES, ETIAS) and of the new interoperability regime under Regulation (EU) 2019/818, from the perspective of their objective to prevent and combat serious crime and to ensure a high level of security in the EU. In Part 2 the article explores personal data protection law, police law and criminal procedure law, in order to propose safeguards and limitations for effectively regulating this rapidly evolving framework and addressing the growing challenges for fundamental legal principles and individual rights. In this respect, the authors put forward concrete views and ideas, on the basis of their central suggestion that the issue discussed falls within the context of an emerging precognitive paradigm of criminal law.

Legal reliance on technical experts can also be traced to biblical Israel: Joseph and Daniel interpreted dreams and Talmudic rabbis acted both as judges and technical experts.2 From ancient times experts were expected to give answers to questions regarding pregnancy and parentage.

Retribution in some legal systems goes back to Talmudic Talion Law (with its famous codification of an “eye for an eye”) which was designed to provide “justice” or, more appropriately, satisfaction to the victims
