Whereas law implied within the well-established conception of the legal system is identified with state legislation, legal tradition seems not to rely on formalistic and conceptual views of law and goes beyond the idea that the state enjoys a monopoly in law production. This approach is not formalistic, and it stresses the value of time as a key factor to understand law instead of the value of space, which is closely linked to the idea of the state as the only possible lawmaker.

While Hussin’s emphasis on power is also important here, her use of hybridity and mixed legal system (as synonymous with legal pluralism) is unusual.

Compare the “multiple sites of legal normativity (polyjuralism)” discussed in Macdonald and MacLean (2005: 727n14). See also Macdonald and MacLean (2005: 732n32). Jean Carbonnier (1977) also uses the term internormativity.
