norm
something that ought to happen. Associated primarily in modern times with Kelsinian jurisprudence, the dictum 'law is the primary norm that stipulates the sanction' indicates what is meant by a norm. Kelsen's theory of concretisation describes the process of tracing the norm, which makes an official apply the sanction to the ultimate justification for it, the grundnorm.
