What Is Normative Theory?

Answer

Normative theory is concerned with the ends and justifications for the law as a whole and for particular legal rules. It is a hypothesis of what is right and wrong, desirable or undesirable, just or unjust in society. Subsequent entries in the legal have examined exemplars of the three great traditions in normative theory which are consequentialist, deontological, and aretaic perspectives.

Normative theory is a theory which seeks to describe statements about what is correct and incorrect, desirable or unwanted, just or unfair in society. It also tries to explain or predict what would happen under hypothetical constraints; what should be, such as ideal competition, instead of what is, or will.
