Building on earlier work, this chapter develops a model of legal rules that admit of exceptions but are nonetheless governed by classical logic. The account is defended against alternative accounts that construe legal rules as generics, or as default rules.

Keywords:   legal rules, legal principles, legal exceptions, generics, default rules, non-monotonic logic
