What is a "judicial divination" in next sentence? I quoted it from the book "Human rights written by Andrew Clapham".
They considered the matter was better left to national legislators than to a judicial divination of overriding human rights principles
According to my dictionary, "judicial" refers "relating to the law, judges or their decisions" and "divination" refers "the ability to say what will happen in the future". I could understand each word but I could not understand the compound form "judicial divination".
