Salmond standing opposed to Winfield opines that there is no “law of tort” (meaning no specific principle of establishing tortious liability) but merely “law of torts”. What he meant to say is that the law of torts consists of a number of specific rules prohibiting certain well-defined harmful acts prohibited by Common Law. This means that there is a certain list of commissions and omissions of acts which under specific situations are actionable in a court of law. Hence according to Salmond, people are only allowed to file a case against that specific act or omission which comes within one of these recognized categories. Like law recognizes specific acts like theft, forgery, dacoity, murder, rape and etc.
It talked about Ray Hyman's quote that parapsychology is solely focused around discrediting the invalid theory. In examination plan, the invalid speculation is customarily used to depict the comes about that would regularly be normal. This is not interesting to parapsychology as it is a system that is utilized as a part of all science. This does not make parapsychology unscientific.

Accordingly, in Fuller's view the predecessor law of conceding immunity would be invalid and there is no need for the enactment of a law retrospectively. With respect to the civil liability, Fuller has a few reservations as to such laws. What must be contemplated is the objective of the retrospective law. For example, the imposing of tax gains in which the object is to raise revenue and not control past conduct, thus issue of retroactivity cannot be used as ground to invalidate such
Thus, as far as primary rules are concerned, Hart argues that there is a need for certainty, so that these rules can be applied by general public without any official guidance. There are a number of defenders of rule of law who have emphasized the need for the same kind of safety. He also discusses clarity as to which norms are to be declared as law. Hart had earlier argued that rule of recognition serves a very important purpose in peoples’ understanding of which rules can be secretively enforced by the society. However, in the Postscipt of his book, the Concept of Law, he says that the need for certainty is not a requisite condition.
“It is not about what we do, but too what we do not do, for which we are accountable.” No action doesn’t amount to no crime but the statute arbitrates create offences of omission. In Bratty V Attorney-General , Lord Denning said that it must be a voluntary act to be punished. Voluntary act is when an individual has complete control and conscious exercise of will on his/her body. Saying if A failed to save B, but A did no positive act to cause B’s death, should A be liable? Omission cannot form the base of actus reus of an offence.
The alternatives can be considered as falsehoods. “Falsification is the central concept behind the scientific method. Consequently, when developing a reconstructive analysis the investigator develops hypothesis that is attempted to disprove. If the hypothesis is falsified the investigator can opine that this hypothesis (or theory of the crime) is not conceivable with the evidence submitted and analyzed. The scientific method appears very similar to the writings of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle when he stated, ‘You eliminate the impossible, then whatever is left, however improbable, is the truth” [3,
PREPARATION Preparation is the second stage of crime. It means arranging things which are necessary for the commission of an offence. The law ignores the acts of preparation. It only takes this into account when it crosses the possibility of an innocent intention. Only that preparation is present Preparation Not Punishable In general the stage of preparation is not punishable by the Indian Penal Code, because preparation without ant motive is only an harmless act.
International law has no central authority and operation as an anarchic highly decentralized legal order. Nevertheless, the absence of an authoritarian figure to enforce penalties does not mean that international law should not be considered “real” law. Law is still applied, but practiced and enforced in different ways. Overall, international law is considered “real” law because system of rules, established by binding agreements, that aim to regulate the actions of its members, but with different characteristics practiced in the domestic arena, where there is legislative, judiciary, executive, and police
Under Competition Act 2010, “no-poach” agreement initiated by AAA is not prohibited. This agreement is necessary to protect trade secret or copyright or any confidential information of the enterprises. Moreover, the impact of poaching is very worrying as it could affect the whole market and automatically defeat the aim of the Commission to safeguards the process of free and fair competition in commercial markets. Thus, this is inapplicable under infringement stated by Section 4(2)(a). Plus, the court must take into account the real nature of this agreement to determine the true rights and interests of the
