Alf Ross on the Concept of a Legal Right
Stockholm University, Faculty of Law, Department of Law.
2014 (English)In: Ratio Juris, ISSN 0952-1917, E-ISSN 1467-9337, Vol. 27, no 4, p. 461-476Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this article, I discuss Alf Ross's claim that the concept of a legal right is best understood as a technical tool of presentation, which ties together a disjunction of operative facts and a conjunction of legal consequences, and that rights statements render the content of a number of legal norms in a convenient manner. I argue that while Ross's analysis is appealing, it is problematic in at least three respects. I also argue, however, that despite these difficulties Ross's analysis deserves our continued attention, because the fundamental idea—that the concept of a legal right must be understood functionally—is sound.
