Statutory Law

Statutory Law (2019)

Statutory law and judge-made law are both attributable to the state. There are two different ways of state’s power forming the law (Herget, Wade, and Bülow 74, 6, 83): ius, the court-made law, and lex (plural legis), ie the law enacted by a legislator or a lawgiver (Lewis and Short 1047). Statutory law, which is a source of positive law (theory of positive law), does not contradict with whatever view one has on natural law (natural law theories and constitutionalism).
