Argumenter a fortiori en droit

Abstract : The argumentation a fortiori is a form of argumentation often overlooked in legal studies. Nevertheless, this technique is extremely used in the legal practice. This article is intended to overcome the lack of the writings on the subject and offers an insight of the wide ranges of the arguments a fortiori whose study allows a better understanding of the operation and the specificities of the legal argumentation. Then, it appears that if the particular formal nature of argumentation a fortiori gives it a superior force of conviction compared to other types of argumentation, its refutation is still possible. Indeed, it is made possible by the dialectical nature of the legal context in which it operates.
