Intimately related to the concept of delict is the concept of legal duty. The concept of duty is originally a specific concept of morals and denotes the moral norm in its relation to the individual to whom certain conduct is prescribed or forbidden by the norm. The statement: “An individual has the (moral) duty, or is (morally) obligated, to observe such-and-such behavior” means that there is a valid (moral) norm enjoining this behavior, or that the individual ought to behave in that way.
