H L A Hart rules of change what is harts rule of chang?

Hart in his book, Concept of Law, has contemplated law to be a unification of two kinds of rules - Primary Rules and secondary rules. These two rules together make, what is known as a 'system of rules'. Secondary rules are of three types -1) Rules of change2) Rules of Adjudication3) Rules of recognitionPrimary rules and secondary rules must co-exist, each being sine qua non of the other.As per his thesis on the rules of change, he says that these are those which enables the modification of the primary rules. If primary rules are not changed then law will not be able to adapt with the changing time and will be of no use. Hart says that rules of change include repealing old rules and bringing new ones in place and amending the rules to suit the changing time and circumstance, which is in a state of constant flux.In light of a constitution, the amending power can be said to a rule of change. eg: Art 368 in the Indian Constitution is a rule of change. (It must be kept in mind that it also provides a power to the Parliament to amend, thus, is also a power conferring law).

What states have the hearsay law?

Can the elements of bribery be proven on hearsay?

No, elements of bribery cannot be definitively proven through hearsay alone. Hearsay involves relaying information that was heard from someone else and is typically not admissible as evidence in court due to reliability concerns. To prove the elements of bribery, direct evidence or corroborating evidence is typically required.

Information against the accused that cannot be used?

It is evidence that has been ruled "INADMISSABLE" by the trial judge. One is tempted to answer this question with "hearsay" evidence. HOWEVER - that would be wrong. There are so many exceptions to the hearsay rule that the only way the admissability of hearsay can be determined is by submitting it to the trial judge and having the judge rule on it. It is entirely possible that, due to the legal cirecumstances of the case, hearsay evidence could be included. However, if the judge rules against it, it becomes "inadmissable." THUS - information that cannot be used against the accused is called "inadmissable evidence."

How should the appellate court rule when evidence that was submitted is relevant yet inadmissible hearsay?

Hearsay is not evidence, the court rules will not allow it to be heard. As you have stated in your question it is, by definition, INADMISSIBLE.

Can a hearsay police report unsigned and uncertified be used to suspend a California drivers license?

I can clarify the first part of your question, in that a "police report unsigned and uncertified" may or may not be admissible in court based on hearsay rules. (Whether or not the suspension takes place through a court is a secondary question.) The basic rule is that hearsay is not admissible. Hearsay, in general, is when I tell what Joe said. I am present to be questioned; Joe is not. The evidence of what Joe said is offered to prove the truth of what Joe said. (If it is offered to prove that Joe was not mute and was capable of speech, it's not hearsay.)The police report, as a written document apparently being offered to prove the truth of what is written therein, is hearsay. The next question is whether it falls into any of the MANY exceptions to the hearsay rule. Local rules can allow hearsay to be used in specific circumstances, sometimes with advance notice required or with a showing of necessity. The basic rules of hearsay would allow an exception for records kept in the regular course of business, made at a time relatively contemporaneous with the event recorded, and maintained in the custody of someone whose job includes maintaining business records.Keep in mind also that someone with legal standing must object to the use of certain evidence in order for the court to consider hearsay questions. And sometimes, even judges need a reminder of all the details of hearsay...------------Short answer: Not really enough information is given in the question in order to answer. HOWEVER - most traffic violations are misdemeanors which (legally) must occur in the opfficer's presence in order to be proecuted.

What is heresay in a court of law?

'Hearsay' is secondhand information that a witness only heard about from someone else but did not see or hear themselves.
