Are theoretical questions about legal process on-topic for the main site?

For example, I am curious about the inevitable complexity that follows the precedent system in the common law. If I were to ask about it, would it be on topic? If it's not, what if I asked a question how such complexity is handled by various legal systems which utilize the common law? Would that be too theoretical?

There are tags on the main site that would seem appropriate for those types of questions. You might peruse the questions under those to get a sense of what sorts of theoretical questions have gotten good ratings and good answers in the past:

However, as on all Stack Exchanges, questions that are too broad and questions that are too vague to admit good answers might be closed.
