For fundamental features of law we look not to law-making institutions (like Austin), nor institutions of law-enforcement (like Holland), but rather to institutions of law-application: “[I]t is to courts of justice, and to them alone, that we must have recourse if we wish to find out what rules are rules of law and what are not” (Salmond 1924, 57).

A. Hart systematically articulated and defended the view (with only the barest acknowledgement of Salmond) in The Concept of Law. Yet even Salmond saw little reason to challenge the basic methodological assumptions of Austinian orthodoxy. Dissenting voices did raise questions about these assumptions, some more radical than others, but these voices rarely received a serious hearing.
