Annotation:
This paper proposes a theoretical theme to explain coherence in legal reasoning. The author argues that theories of coherence in the legal system should be differentiated from theories of coherence in legal reasoning. The article applies this theme to the case law of the European Court of Justice in environmental matters and provides an example of how to deal with conflicts between incommensurable goods and how to promote coherence by justifying decisions.
