Abstract

This paper examines the relationship between WTO rules, positivism, and the Nepalese legal system. The role of ideology is examined as one of the key issues that characterize the nature of a legal system. It explicates how the Nepalese legal system having one of its stark features always drew an edge between ideology and law in a sense that it was taken as a separate discipline from religion, politics, economics, and other social institutions. However, the law was entrusted to engineer these disciplines providing them a legal reason for maintaining social cohesion, harmony, and justice.
