The Balance between Islamic Law, Customary Law and Human Rights in Islamic Constitutionalism through the Prism of Legal Pluralism The question of whether or not to include Islamic law in a constitution is a recurrent issue with significant implications for human rights. 1 Islamic law contains norms that bear on human rights such as gender equality and the rights of religious minorities, and these may conflict with both domestic constitutional human rights norms and international human rights norms, for example under the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The recoding efforts of French customary laws made the difference among such rules sharp and conspicuous. Case law grew up in England because of the accident of the early English judges being Normans. They were foreigners to England and they were bound together by an ESPRIT DE CORPS, which made them respect each other's decisions, especially when these decisions dealt with matters, which were strange and unfamiliar to them ref.: Russian Traditional Culture: Religion, Gender, and Customary Law Miller, Geoffrey P.

At its most extreme, this scholarship argues that international treaties, especially those encompassing human rights obligations, actually generate international legal norms, 31 because such conventions are inevitably not simply the codification of existing legal norms but rather the creation of new ones. 32 Relying, at times, on findings from the International Court of Justice, 33 a framework has been presented by this scholarship which seeks to modify the role of prolonged state practice and opinio juris in the process of transforming conventional or treaty-based international law (binding only on the state signatories) into customary international law (binding on all). 34 This non-traditional scholarship presents a framework which insists that the signing of a convention or treaty by a wide group of countries is, in and of itself, evidence of the creation of new customary legal norms , cited: Customary Law of the Nomadic Tribes of Siberia (Uralic and Altaic Series)

The paucity of citations to Hart's The Concept of Law is perhaps the first indication that this is meant to be an indictment, not a scholarly assessment, of the positivist theory of the common law. Simpson claims, first, that positivists think "the common law is a set of rules" (here he echoes the early Dworkin) which "owe their the fact that they have been laid down" (80), and here at least he can cite some pertinent passages from Austin, John Chipman Gray (!), and Kelsen A treatise on the law of copyholds and customary tenures of landmicroform; with an appendix containing an abstract of the stamp duties affecting ... 1858, and the principal official forms used

Some of the debates about "persons" and "personhood" may reflect an ambiguity in the word "person." But it is at least possible that one of the senses of person (roughly the moral sense) is a contested concept--that is, there may be competing conceptions of the concept person.
