The general principles of law:
Article 38 lists the general principles of law. The term ‘General Principles of Law’ is an old term that has had many different interpretations. These interpretations are sometimes, conflicting.
According to the naturalist doctrine, these are principles that are applicable under the natural and divine law and these are applicable between "civilized" nations and people.
These are principles that are inherent to the legal system and it is the idea that the constitutive principles are related to the very idea of a legal order. One example of the principle pacta sumservanda, is that that we must respect the pact that "was concluded, or the principle of good faith.” These are two principles that are necessary for the existence of a legal order. There is also a general obligation to repair its own damage to the foundation of the tort law, or the principle of competence.
