Fundamental legal concepts: A formal definition
From IVR encyclopedie
We shall introduce a set basic legal concepts, providing a logical definition of them. This basic set will include, beside the usual deontic modalities (obligations, prohibitions and permissions), the following notions: right as protected interest (obligational right), normative conditional, different kinds of legal power, the intentional production of legal determinations (proclamation), source of the law. The presentation will be as precise as possible, while keeping the logical notions at a minimum.
