Legal action is inscribed within an institutional context. This produces a number of constraining effects on the way that action is deployed, in its sequential organization and its orientation toward procedural correctness. Through the documents produced during the prosecutor’s interrogations or the sentencing, as in interactions that take place during the investigation or the testimony of witnesses, it is possible to identify the ways that different parties to the trial manifest the particular dimension of the process in which they are engaged and the care they take in displaying its formal correctness. In that sense, procedural correctness refers to a series of achievements that are empirically observable and explicitly produced by the multiple parties to a trial.
