Customary laws and customary legal rights: a comparative consideration of their nature and of the relationships between laws / Gordon R. Woodman.

Title: Customary laws and customary legal rights: a comparative consideration of their nature and of the relationships between laws / Gordon R. Woodman.
Author(s): Woodman, Gordon R.
Date: 1999.
Publisher: Tromsø: Centre for Saami Studies, UiT
In: On customary law and the Saami rights process in Norway. (1999.),
Abstract: These arise from general acceptance in population group and get their content from that. Norms specify consequences of voluntary dealings or natural events, or define concepts. Group recognises ethnic nature. General rights are always changing, and may arise even when State's laws are in conflict with them. Summary shows that there is no clear difference between the two types of law. Not all civil systems have customary laws. Recognition may be normative or institutional.
