A legal problem is a dispute that must be resolved within the framework of current law. When the same is submitted to a judge's decision, the obligation to motivate it is usually imposed. This requires defining the dispute based on the normative and factual statements that are introduced by the parties in the process, supported by hermeneutical consensus and / or evidence. When the judge has the full normative and factual information - and their respective interpretative and probative grounds -, he is in a position to formulate the problem. This then has a double component: the normative, which refers to the general aspect of the controversy and states the topic on which the debate will turn, and the factual one, which indicates the characteristics of the case that give the particular hermeneutical turn to the general theme.
