I argue that a concept of law that assigns primacy to the regulative role fulfilled by legal systems is best suited for explaining law’s discrete practice areas. This regulative point of view facilitates the development of a concept of law capable of cohering with theories of discrete legal areas. This posted paper revises the originally published Cumberland Law Review version.
