Law/Patents - Government / Politics
German term or phrase: als ueberschiessende Innentendenz gleichsam vorweg erfassen
Text is discussing the interpretation of law relating to what constitutes genocide.

Context:
Durch dieses gesetliche Merkmal, das den erstrebten Erfolg im Subjektiven als ueberschiessende Innentendenz gleichsam vorweg erfasst, wird nicht der Tater, sondern die Tat als ganzes and damit ihr besonderes Unrecth gekennzeichnet.

English translation:understands the success aspired to as an overriding inner tendency, so to speak, to come ahead
Explanation:
My take:

"Based on this legal criterion, which subjectively understands the success aspired to as an overriding inner tendency, so to speak, to forge ahead, it is not the perpetrator/malefactor but the deed/offence that is deemed as a total and therefore its unique injustice."

I'm confused a little about 'ihr'. Does it refer to 'Tat' or a person?

Worked with a lot of government materials while I was with Price Waterhouse. Not exactly bed-side reading but it paid a lot...
