The legal example is used in large part to dress the rule. A naked norm, for common lawyers, is simply an abstraction, an umbrageous nebulosity that needs its particulars, its cases, to have meaning, impact and thought. Using the paradoxical example of nakedness the essay examines the inability of British and European courts candidly to address the undressed. Nakedness is here examined as an instance of undressing the law, of stripping and streaking the norm.
