Star Trek: Paradigme juridique et laboratoire du droit is an article by Fabrice Defferrard commissioned by the prestigious "Revue générale du droit" of the University of Ottawa in Canada.


Star Trek is a realm of paradigmatic fiction for the system of law. It is based essentially on a complex legal and judiciary architecture, inspired by a universalist model that highlights civil liberties, fundamental human rights, and a fair trial. Tasked to peacefully explore outer space, officers of Starfleet establish law relations and solve conflicts of norms in sometimes uncommon situations, making this entertaining saga a genuine laboratory of law.
