    compelling interest

    Hola
    Estoy traduciendo un texto del inglés al castellano. Dice lo siguiente:
    "There is a strong argument that damage caused by firearms gives the government a 'compelling interest' to require insurance, the test for infringing a constitutional right".

    ¿Hay algún término específico para traducir 'compelling interest'?

    De momento se me ocurre "interés apremiante".
    Gracias

    Welcome to the forum.

    Looking at the definitions of "compelling" in my bilingual dictionary, I think that convincente is the best fit.

    Thanks,
    I thought there could be a more specific term in a legal context.

    thanks again for your help.

    I agree.

    Animado interés. This is what I would probably use. (Or interés animado)

    Or , convincente interés/ contundente interés

    Please critique my feedback, too, and don't hesitate to educate me some more on whether the adjective or noun is supposed to go first--I heard it doesn't really matter.
