Hart and Legal Positivism

Hart puts forward the view that law (a legal system) is the union of two kinds of rules: primary and secondary rules. Primary rules are those rules that directly govern our conduct: rules that tell us what to do, like the law against committing murder, or requiring us to pay our taxes. Secondary rules, on the other hand, are rules about the primary rules, telling us how those primary rules can be changed, applied and identified.
