Book Review - Professional Emotions In Court: A Sociological Perspective by Stina Bergman Blix and Asa Wettergren

Rossner, Meredith


The so‐called positivist or objective view of the legal process that assumes separation between rational deliberation and the realm of emotions has long been challenged by socio‐legal scholars. Pioneers in this field have drawn our attention to the feeling rules, emotional labour, and management of emotions in court; pointed out the performative and dramaturgic aspects of the legal process; and reminded us to play close attention to ritual, language, interaction, power, and status.
