This chapter approaches the topic of legal objectivity by analysing law's possible relationships with morality, rules, standards, and principles. If law is constituted by some combination of those elements, then law's objectivity will be entirely a function of their objectivity. That, at least, will be the working assumption.

Keywords:   legal objectivity, law, morality, rules, standards, principles
