Non-personal Rights Law and Legal Definition
Non-personal rights are rights that are not inhere in the individual; they are not individually focused; and they do not create individual entitlements. Non-personal rights often have a system wide or aggregate focus. They are defined in terms of obligations of the person or entity regulated rather than in terms of entitlements of the individual protected and they are not concerned with whether the needs of any particular person have been satisfied.
