The Institutional Nature of Law*
Analytical jurisprudence deals with three problem areas. The first deals with the special features of the judicial process and of the judicial reasoning. The second concerns the discussion of legal concepts and the types of legal standards. The third includes the idea of a legal system and the features which distinguish such systems from other normative systems. This chapter aims to outline a view that identifies the features of municipal legal systems. It focuses on the idea of legal system and the features that separate such systems from other normative systems. Discussed in the chapter are the concept of primary institutions, the limitations of the law, its uniqueness, and its importance.
