If I Write An Article Posing These Questions, Put A Fork In Me, I'm Done

What is the meaning of meaning? How is it constructed? How is one meaning adopted to the exclusion of all others? What is the role played by law in construction and adoption of meaning? What is the effect of grant of legal sanction to a particular meaning? Why does this meaning remain unchallenged? Does the role of law in creation of meaning change depending upon the right in question?
From this new law review article's abstract.

This article, by an Israeli Supreme Court judge, exemplifies everything awful that I associate with the term Legal Theory.
