An exploration of the nature of adjudication in the common law tradition from within a feminist postmodernist perspective. The author accepts and celebrates the ""choices"" open to the judge and argues that without choice, judgement cannot be properly ""judicial"". ""To Speak as a Judge"" provides a feminist exploration of the nature of law and legality. Grounded in the process of adjudication and its rhetorical nature, it draws upon significant contemporary cases to explore the narrativity of law and the ways in which rhetorical and judicial understandings of the nature of law determine narrative style.
