This chapter attempts to identify what seem to be defects, for example, omissions and ideas not fully worked out, in The Concept of Law. What are principally of interest are issues which Hart discusses, if only in a limited way, or issues which, though not explicitly mentioned, must have been known by him to raise problems. Among these are Hart's ideas about the rule of recognition, comparative law, positivism, law and coercion, and common law.

Keywords: HLA Hart; The Concept of Law; rule of recognition; comparative law; positivism; law and coercion; common law
