classifying legislation

I find that I wrote in private mail a few years ago:

I’d divide legislation into three broad classes: that concerned with the structure and management of the state itself; codifications and harmonisations of existing custom (basic criminal law, the Uniform Commercial Code); and economic interventions, what Hayek and I disapprove of.

Funny that I haven’t thought of that taxonomy since. Can you improve on it?
