Summary/Abstract: As a result of this study, this article presents the reader, in a summarized way, the structure, compositional elements, logical and rhetorical content of the judicial speech, in particular prosecution and defense speech, from the standpoint of philosophy of law. The question of equivalence and application of ethics, morality and truth in the law is up to date from Antiquity to the present day. These moral categories can be analyzed in depth mostly by philosophical science, with the help of its constituents – ethics, aesthetics, rhetoric, logic. It is sufficed to recall the Roman maxim – In jure veritas (At right is the truth). Accordingly, the search for truth, evidence, reasoning and ways of arguing are the leading ideas and major themes of the analytical text.
