The first part of the article is a critique of Hugo Zuleta’s alternative to the standard theory of legal order based on a distinction, made by Alchourrón and Bulygin, between a legal order and a legal system. In the second part, I purport to reject three objections that Zuleta raised against the standard theory. He defends the disambiguation of “Law” into legal order and legal system, the benefits of defining legal order as a sequence of systems, and the idea that sequences have non extensional identity conditions. I then conclude, against Zuleta, that legal orders preserve their identity even though new systems are added to the sequence.

Abstract

The first part of the article is a critique of Hugo Zuleta’s alternative to the standard theory of legal order based on a distinction, made by Alchourrón and Bulygin, between a legal order and a legal system. In the second part, I purport to reject three objections that Zuleta raised against the standard theory. He defends the disambiguation of “Law” into legal order and legal system, the benefits of defining legal order as a sequence of systems, and the idea that sequences have non extensional identity conditions. I then conclude, against Zuleta, that legal orders preserve their identity even though new systems are added to the sequence.
