A Jigsaw Puzzle for Rainy Days – How to Put Together the Pieces: Sources of Law, Forms of Law, Principles, Standards, Rules and Norms – to Get a Consistent Picture of Law?

Alexander Bröstl

Abstract


This is a proposal – “a tentative smile on the face of law” – how to create a consistent picture of law and diminish the confusion in the usage of the most frequent key-legal concepts. Its outcome is that law is one entity: its structure so far contains terms of the same degree with respect to all of their variables (sources, forms or rules, norms), from general rules (principles, laws) to individual rules (judicial and administrative decisions).


Keywords


sources/forms of law; principles; general and individual norms/rules; all-what-is-law
