The aim of this paper is to suggest a method of judicial opinion analysis. This method has five essential aspects: 1) form; 2) procedure; 3) precedential value; 4) authority; and 5) substance. Observation of these aspects in judicial opinions should broaden legal and jurisprudential perspective and cause critical analysis of case dispositions.
