The Existence of a Judiciary Power as a Misguided Concept

The existence of a judiciary power is a concept presented as resulting from the description of the implementation of the theory of the separation of powers in the jurisprudence of the Constitutional Council. Yet, this “implementation” is only the result of a choice of interpretation by this jurisprudence, based on the authors’preferences regarding the best way to organize powers. The criticism of the concept’s deceptively descriptive character opens the way for the development of a non normative analysis of judicial power, whose existence has never been in dispute. Following the various interpretations of positive law, this paper probes two domains : on one hand, the definition of the judicial activity and its normative reach ; on the other, the judicial regime of the organs that exercise this activity. What is at stake in each of these domains is the division, the sharing, and the mastering of this “power”, notably to the benefit of governmental power.
