Legal Interpretivism

Abstract:
Interpretivism about law offers a philosophical explanation of how institutional practice—the legally significant action and practices of political institutions—modifies legal rights and obligations. Its core claim is that the way in which institutional practice affects the law is determined by certain principles that explain why the practice should have that role. Interpretation of the practice purports to identify the principles in question and thereby the normative impact of the practice on citizens' rights and responsibilities.
