To begin with, we should review this situation in terms of the two opposite positions, two opposite schools of jurisprudence. According to legal positivism, there is not necessarily a connection between law and morality. Instead, it holds that law comes from various sources, usually the government. If the government enacts a law, then it should be followed. What is more, positivists do not make decisions from a subjective approach and do not let feelings and emotions obscure his judgment. This is obvious advantage, because we could be assured of a fair decision. According to legal realism, this theory supposes that law is a reflection of the personal views of those people who in charge of enacting, applying, and enforcing statutes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
