Argumentation and rhetoric have been embedded in social dialogues from the birth of civilization at least. Throughout history, many different models of both argumentation and rhetoric have been developed to properly address the social requirements of place and time, by indicating how people argue or should argue. Argumentation has generally been depicted as a discipline interested in the structure of argument, while rhetoric has been understood as a broader process of having arguments. What both have shared was a particularly humanistic dimension: a critical exchange of frequently different positions backed by supporting evidence as the dialogue among people – with their ability to make logical arguments accompanied by non-logical means of persuasion best understood by psychology. All of the above-said applies to law, as one of the oldest disciplines in human society. Through time, legal argumentation as well as legal rhetoric have established themselves as important parts of argumentation and rhetoric.
