Abstract

The legal doctrine of “ingorantia juris non excusat”, namely the fact that ignorance of law is no excuse (often also paraphrased to include “ignorantia iuris nocet”, i.e. not knowing the law is harmful) presupposes a law that can be accessible, clear and precise. The Diseyan rule of law discussed also in Raz illustrates this point further: laws need to be construed upon open, general and clear rules. In this respect not only citizens are not required to have a legal background so as to understand legislation but it is imperative to make the legislative framework clear, open and accessible to all.
