In common parlance ‘person’ means either male or female, but the legal meaning of the term stands entirely different from the meaning of the common parlance. Looking at certain legal definition, as per Salmond “A person is a being when the law regards capable of rights and duties”. Thus any human beings which is capable of to execute the rights and duties such “persons would be called as persons in the eyes of laws”. Before going into different kinds of persons the conclusion remains that “any person who is able to hold rights and duties such person may either be classified as natural & legal persons. Thus under the subjects of international law the legal term ‘legal personality’ has a wide interpretation. Let us understand the concept of legal personality followed by what may be included as a legal personality under international law with their rights and duties.
