This article argues that there is no single ‘right’ answer in law by analysing the components of legal reasoning as they exist and the legal complexities and complications that surround them. This article discusses the ambiguity of certain components in the reasoning process. It critiques the judiciary and the sway of their unconscious judgements, in particular reference to the Case of the Speluncean Explorers. Finally, it briefly outlines the contrasting legal schools of thought in order to explore the differing verdicts they can provide, and the struggle between morality and law.
