Doe, N. Non-statutory settlements and courts: enforceability. Liverpool Law Rev 9, 173-188 (1987). doi.org/10.1007/BF01079939 A typical example of a non-legal rule is a political convention in the United Kingdom. These conventions evolve over time and in some way limit the actions of the executive, monarch or parliament. Although they have a very real impact on the behaviour of political actors, they cannot be legally enforced in the same way as legal rules. This was unanimously confirmed by the UK Supreme Court in R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exit the European Union . In this case, the enforceability of the “Sewel Convention” was brought before the courts. The convention states that the British Parliament at Westminster normally enacts laws concerning devolved nations (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) only if they have the consent of devolved legislators.
In the context of this case, devolved lawmakers argued that the British Parliament must receive their blessing before formally starting the process of leaving the European Union. However, the Court did not recognise the Convention as a rule of law and therefore concluded that “review of its scope and the way in which it operates does not fall within the constitutional competence of the judiciary, which is to protect the rule of law”. However, Wade & Bradley argue that “it would be wrong to simplify this decision by stating that the court applies the convention. The Convention was nothing more than a factor taken into account by the court in determining the limits of the legal doctrine of confidence` (paragraph 1 above, pp. 29, 30). Legal regulations differ from non-statutory regulations such as customs or conventions. Violations of non-legal regulations still often have consequences for the party concerned, but these rules cannot be enforced by the judiciary like legal regulations. A legal rule or law is a rule that has been formally approved by the legislative body of a state. The legislation is interpreted by the courts, which adjudicate the cases before them, and may impose sanctions on those who violate these rules.
