When “Tailor-made laws” are not laws indeed
Languages of publication
Tailor-made laws could be generally defined as laws lacking the element of generality and “tailored” particularly for a certain situation or person. Whilst some cases of the use of tailor-made laws pursue the purpose of legislative intervention in the executive power as another component under the checks-and-balances model of division of power, in other cases, these laws do not interfere with the division of power per se, as such laws establish no rule of conduct whatsoever. In this note, attention will be paid to the second type of tailor-made laws and the author will attempt to clarify whether the latter kind of laws meets the requirements imposed on normative legal acts, which can be characterised by the very fact that such acts contain legal norms, and whether they can be considered rules of conduct.
