This paper investigates how both contemporary legal scholars and, in general, legal actors, by and large tend to perceive policy as a spectrum of standards (policy as results) whose production and nature is political in relation to the legal order (externality of the policy process). Policies are then generally perceived as paths of a political nature because they are produced outside the legal world, and through which, political evaluations and decisions are inserted (to a greater or lesser extent) into the legal system.
