Raz, The Authority of Law: Essays on Law and Morality (2d) (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009). A. Macdonald and D. Sandomierski, “Against Nomopolies” (2006) 57 Northern Ireland Legal Quarterly 610. B. B. Solum, “Virtue Jurisprudence: A Virtue-Centered Theory of Judging” (2003) 34 Metaphilosophy 178. In a legal pluralistic conception, everyone is a law-maker and a law-applier, but some actually are conceded to have general authority by virtue of their wisdom. The manifestly foolish human being, interacting with others, is a law-maker and a law-applier, but no one accepts her or his actions as authoritative; by contrast the wise human being, engaged in the same activities, can be conceded to be an authority and other human beings, even as agents, will typically defer to her or his understandings.

2 Pluralistic Human Rights? Universal Human Wrongs? 17 Today I hope I have a richer theoretical understanding of why I wrote as I did back then. In 1982, I did not appreciate that my sense of law as grounded in human interaction carried implications beyond the recognition of the dialogic character of law’s authority. At the time I sought only to understand law as a purposive human endeavour. My queries were these: when, why and how do human societies develop normative practices and forms of interaction within which self-policing coordination is possible?

28 Legal pluralism invites us to imagine that there are multiple forms of legal normativity operating within the same legal regime, wherever we choose to locate it. Even within the official state legal order, we perceive a plurality of normative types: explicit canonical norms; implicit canonical norms; explicit inferential norms; and implicit inferential norms. 29 Contrary to many theories of internormativity, migration of norms occurs in all four frames, and is not unidirectional. So, for example, implicit canonical (customary) norms may migrate from one customary field to another; explicit canonical (enacted) norms may migrate from one institutional site to another; explicit inferential (stare decisis) norms may migrate from one decision-making frame to another.
