It really depends on what the issue is, basically law related would be anything used in legal procedures, "legal" would refer to the actual application of the law. For example a licensed attorney is a legal practioner of the law, a paralegal cannot practice law but works in law related areas such as interviewing witnesses, taking depositions, drafting legal documents and so forth. An attorney is responsible for the legality and accuracy of all work done by their legal assistants/paralegals.

One simple argument put forward is that, legal validity of laws presents the fundamental difference between natural and positive law. Natural law theorist argue that the law ought to reflect a higher law and that higher law is morality, to which the law derives its validity, whilst legal positivist believe that the legal validity comes through due process, through acts of Parliament which legislates and makes laws. morality is not a criteria for establishing legal validity

The differences between the two is that Natural Law theory focuses on the legitimacy of law from a morality and justice based standpoint while Legal Positivism draws from the authority of the lawmaker and the process of lawmaking.
