2Legal subjects and rights A ‘legal subject’ is any person, or entity, who can hold rights and duties in terms of the law. If one legal subject has a right to something, then another legal subject has a duty not to interfere with that right. A ‘right’ refers to your ability to claim or protect something in which you have a legal interest from another person. If you hold this interest you may legally require another person to give something, or to do something, or to not do something. Legal subjects may have legal rights to: ‘Corporeal’ things, which are physical things that can be touched.

We can therefore say that a duty is an ‘obligation’. 3The concept of legal personality ‘Legal personality’ refers to entities which may hold rights and duties in terms of the law. The law defines who or what may have legal personality and the extent of that personality once it is obtained. The law can define, alter, or withdraw legal personality. For example, according to our law, children have fewer rights than adults. Not all living creatures are legal subjects capable of bearing rights and duties.
