Abstract

The uncertainty principle from quantum mechanics challenges assumptions of determinism and has profound implications for legal theory and jurisprudence. This paper reviews the uncertainty principle and arguments about how it could impact core areas of jurisprudence including standards of proof, causation doctrines, and conceptual frameworks. An interdisciplinary literature review was conducted. The uncertainty principle implies limits on precision of knowledge that some scholars argue requires shifting from deterministic to probabilistic approaches in law. However, significant debate remains over whether insights from quantum mechanics apply meaningfully to the macroscopic legal domain. More collaborative interdisciplinary research is needed to fully assess the potential transformative impacts on jurisprudence.
