The use of narrative in law and its legal relevance has many diverse aspects. The relationship between law and narrative is a multifaceted one, and not easily defined or even admitted. This kind of relationship is enhanced when looking at judicial writing. There is a gap between the function of the judicial text as a public normative act and its private dimension, which is expressed in a catalogue of personal creative choices. The continuous tension creates a number of complex questions, pertaining to the ethics and the desirable modes of judicial narrative, which are dealt with in the article.
