Description: Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Distinguished Scholar in Law and Jurisprudence at the Mises Institute and Senior Judicial Analyst at Fox News presented at the 2014 Mises Circle in Costa Mesa, California the difference between Natural Law and Legislative Law resulting from contract and the consent of the people. You can voluntarily surrender access to rights by contract. Time 19:09

The Law of Nature or Natural Law is defined as, “The divine will, or the dictate of right reason, showing the moral deformity or moral necessity that there is in any act, according to its suitableness or un-suitableness to a reasonable nature. Sometimes used of the law of human reason, in contradistinction to the revealed law, and sometimes of both, in contradistinction to positive law.”[1]

Natural law, or the law of nature (Latin: lex naturalis), is a system of law that is determined by nature, and so is universal. Classically, natural law refers to the use of reason to analyze human nature — both social and personal — and deduce binding rules of moral behavior from it. Natural law is often contrasted with the positive law of a given political community, society, or state.

Although natural law is often conflated with common law, the two are distinct in that natural law is a view that certain rights or values are inherent in or universally cognizable by virtue of human reason or human nature, while common law is the legal tradition whereby certain rights or values are legally cognizable by virtue of judicial recognition or articulation.
