What is Natural Justice? Natural justice is a concept of common law, which represents procedural principles introduced by courts, which must be followed by judicial, quasi-judicial and administrative agencies during decision-making. Natural justice has principles concerning procedural fairness and ensuring these principles are followed, protects the rights of citizens, enhances public confidence and ensures that a fair decision is reached. Hence, it can be said that natural justice implies fairness, equity and equality. The principles of natural justice were derived from Romans who believed that some legal principles occur naturally and statutory basis was not necessary.

Through these formulas come the idea of imperfect and perfect duties. A perfect duty is moral truth that must be followed at all times, while an imperfect duty is one that should be followed some of the time depending on the circumstance.

What makes authority legitimate or illegitimate? When putting your life and trust into someone else or a government and submitting to their authority, you better make sure they are legitimate.

Utilitarianism is a term in which John Rawls rejects on two main grounds. Utilitarianism ignores the distinctness of persons and defines the right in terms of the good, according to Rawls. Rawls aims to create a theory of justice (thought experiment in this sense) that is superior to Utilitarianism and offers an intuitive dynamic. Rawls’ theory of justice as a result, can best be described as an attempt to apply in his terms a consistent analogy on the distinctness of persons and prioritising the right over the good . Rawls himself talks about justice as free and equal persons cooperating and agreeing to certain terms in fair conditions, hence the term “justice as fairness” .
