Example text

8 Similarly, Salmond wrote in Jurisprudence, “the extent of legislative power depends on and is measured by the recognition accorded to it by the tribunals of the state. Any enactment which the law-courts decline to recognise and apply is by that very fact not law and lies beyond the legal competence of the body whose enactment it is” (Salmond 1924, 529, author’s emphasis). 12 TREATISE, 11 - 20TH CENTURY: THE COMMON LAW WORLD legislative power of Parliament is sovereign, he admitted, but this is not theoretically necessary; indeed, it was not always so.

It follows that sovereign coercive power is not necessarily unlimited. Dewey argued further that Austin accepted that the habit of obedience might be limited in various ways with respect to both the objects and the occasions of obedience, but that they could not count as divisions of or limits on sovereignty because no determinate person or body (habitually obeyed by all others) imposed them (Dewey 1894, 35–7). This important clarification of the Austinian doctrine left untouched the question of the necessity of the unity and illimitability of sovereignty.

The causes or occasions which determine the recognition of new principles of law by the judicature are themselves defined and determined by law” (Salmond 1893, 139). These legal principles determine the “sources” of law (Salmond 1893, 139; 1924, 164–70).
