Duranti 1998, p. 125–126 Within [a juridical system], however much the governing principle changes over time and from place to place, human endeavors always present an organizational, an instrumental, and an executive or a constitutive nature. Duranti 1998, p. 43, n. 22 The term 'juridical' is broader than the term 'legal.' It refers to the nature of abstract legal concepts. Thus, a 'juridical transaction' is a transaction legally supposed or conceived of, to some extent irrespective of its actual existence, even if it contemplates incidents and circumstances not recognized by the law.
