About natural law

About natural law as one of UK jurisprudence law exists as stated here; the term "natural law" is ambiguous. It refers to a type of moral theory, as well as to a type of legal theory, but the core claims of the two kinds of theory are logically independent. It does not refer to the laws of nature, the laws that science aims to describe. According to natural law ethical theory, the moral standards that govern human behavior are, in some sense, objectively derived from the nature of human beings.

According to natural law legal theory, the authority of at least some legal standards necessarily derives, at least in part, from considerations having to do with the moral merit of those standards. There are a number of different kinds of natural law theories of law, differing from each other with respect to the role those morality plays in determining the authority of legal norms. This was taken from the internet encyclopedia of philosophy.

(Hedley 2006) For example of natural law about injury from Injury Law center, if you have been involved in a serious car or other motor vehicle accident, no fault of your own, we believe you have a right to quality legal representation regardless of your ability to pay. If we accept your case, you'll never have an out-of-pocket charge, and unless you get money for your case you owe us nothing. (Cartwrigth 1999)

According to law of society as per discussed by the analytical jurisprudence, news presented by the UK construction law UK SCL TO HOST 2008 INTERNATIONAL SCL CONFERENCE, in scenes reminiscent of the UK's lobbying for the Olympics in Singapore the previous year, your Chairman and his team fought off strong competition from around the world to win the overall approval of SCLs to stage the 2008 SCL International Conference in London. The event will be staged in late September or early October 2008 and work has already commenced to enable us to match the efficiency and success of the Singapore team.

In view of the news statement, it was clearly stated the purpose of the law is to enhance the sports team to be stronger to compete and should see to it that the competing team will have a target and aims to be successful in their endeavor. (George 1994) As per short essay extract, mention as analyze and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of natural moral law as a definitive ethical theory. The strengths that can be ascribed to natural law are a product of its absolutist deontological view of morality. This is to say that it enables people to establish common rules in order to structure communities.

This can be an attractive option in a society such as our, enduring a relativist era that is suffering from a break down in traditional social structures and moral uncertainty. Aquinas's view of reason as a tool for moral understanding and his idea of a common nature and morality for all people give natural law a universality that goes beyond any one religion or culture. This can be seen as a very positive aspect considering the intercultural strife and disharmony that exists between cultures and societies which all uphold similar basic principles such as conserving life.

Natural moral law gives a concrete reason to be moral and provides a firm basis for individuals to be good. (Hoyer 2006) SUMMARY According to a person in UK named Gustav Radbruch is well known for a “formula” that addresses the conflict of positive law and justice, a formula discussed in the context of the consideration of Nazi laws by the courts in the post-War German Federal Republic, and East German laws in the post-unification German courts.

More recently, Robert Alexy has defended a version of Radbruch’s formula, offering arguments for it that are different from and more sophisticated than those that were adduced by Radbruch himself. Alexy also placed Radbruch’s formula within a larger context of conceptual analysis and theories about the nature of law. Both Radbruch and Alexy claim that their positions are incompatible with legal positivism, and therefore count as a rejection (and perhaps, refutation) of it. (Hedley 2006)
