An inference of law from a factual showing. The conclusions drawn by the court in the exercise of its legal judgment from the facts found by it.

A 'conclusion of law' is either: (1) a 'finding by the court as determined through application of rules of law'; (2) 'propositions of law which the judge arrives at after, and as a result of, finding certain facts in the case;' or (3) 'the final judgment or decree required on the basis of facts found.' The second category may constitute such 'mixed questions of fact and law' as 'are dependent upon the facts and circumstances of each individual case.' See Coll v. McCarthy, 72 Haw. 20, 28, 804 P.2d 881, 886 (1991).
