Under a practical aspect legal orientation means prophesying "what the courts will do in fact". If this is uncertain, one may try to induce a precedent. In a system of law, where the doctrine of stare decisis is unknown, its binding influence upon future cases, provided by the ligitant, is yielded by judicial organization. The fact, that inferior courts conform to the precendent, points out the issue of a rule instead of a mere decision of a single case. Intentional "playing for rules", as it is called by Galanter, is a way of reducing legal uncertainty only for litigants being directly concerned with the outcome of similar future cases, and only for those, who are resourceful enough to surmount impediments, put by the rules of court, even if the described play is accepted by the judicial system.
