Construire sa légitimité à énoncer le droit. Étude de doléances de prisonniers

Abstract : This paper accounts for modes of expression of legal references in petitions sent by prisoners to the French General-Controller of Places of Deprivation of Liberty. The diversity of the rhetorical operations stating and qualifying legal references offers a chance to outline some of the moral constraints faced by socially weakened actors to establish their own legitimacy to communicate about the law with an administrative entity. According to the way the law itself is characterized (the legal system, the law, my rights), prisoners’ rhetorical strategies change, drawing the contours of a twofold social unworthiness: unworthiness to state the law and unworthiness to present oneself as entitled.
