Abstract [en]

Karl Olivecrona was among the founders of the Scandinavian Legal Realist movement that developed a theory of law at odds with traditional imperativist and voluntaristic theories of law. Here his theory is presented on the backdrop of a comment to the first translation of his work into French. The aim of the paper is to flesh out a reading of Olivecrona theory of fundamental rights that better fits the facts and that does not lead to laments over lack of constitutionalization.
