5 Critics sympathetic with historical jurisprudence argued that the signal failure of the command model was its blindness to customary forms of law. Customary rules are not imposed on a community by a determinate political authority, as the command model insists, but rather develop spontaneously within it. Holland, as we have seen, modified Austin’s view, according to which customs became law when recognized by courts exercising a delegated law-making power (Austin 1954, 31, 163), and held that courts tend to exercise this law-making power in wholesale fashion, legislating conditions which customary rules must satisfy in order to earn status as valid laws.
However, Salmond insisted that this is simply false—it is not essential to any system of law that the governing authority be regarded as having any legislative power, let alone that the power be unlimited (“infinite”). 8 Thus, to determine whether supreme legislative power in a system is legally unlimited one must look neither to normative arguments nor to a priori conceptual considerations, but only to the activities of that system’s tribunals. In England, the 7 Later, a similar question will arise regarding the determinants of the content of the rule of recognition (the concept that plays a role in Hart’s positivism parallel to that of sovereignty in Austinian positivism).
Every rule or principle of law is “embodied in a judicial practice” (Salmond 1893, 88); its fundamental principles constitute “the creed of the courts” (Salmond 1924, 40). ) by the courts and this recognition is manifested in the courts’ use of them in concrete cases. , 57). Salmond drew two conclusions of a distinctively positivist cast from this definition of law. , 40) and thus represent “the wisdom and justice of the organised commonwealth,” their status as law depends strictly on their recognition by the courts.
