                                                                 'A legal person is any subject matter other than a human being to which law attributes personality.' Who said these words?

                                                     
                                                                     SIR JOHN SALMOND 

Here in the definition of Salmond, the word has been used the “Personalities” is means the philosophical body of any natural person and instead, of this it has also been considered that there also some of the matter related to the subject of law which is not the natural human being but they have included in the jurisdiction of the law such bodies are like any institution or any Company or any behavior of the personal. And above all the law said that all the persons who avail the rights and duties of the law are legal persons. In the definition of the law of the personality also there are corporations, institutions, idols, and also the reputation of any personality will be considered under this definition. In some cases, it is far difficult to differentiate the personalities with Humanities and that is the reason they coincide with each other. Law has also explained the word ' legal person' in the context of the “Animals” and said that animals are not considered as legal persons because they are not present in the subject of the legal rights and Duties.
Salmond also define that the word personality should be determined by the status and capacity of a person further he explains the term 'Status' as there should be some legal conditions whether personal or proprietary, having personal legal conditions except the Proprietory conditions, personal capacities, and incapacities, even the opposed ones, the opposed ones are compulsory. Here the term ‘capacity means the use of legal powers and rights.
there has been decided the types of person in the law the one is the Natural persons and the other one is the legal persons. From this definition, we can say that not all natural persons are legal persons.
