We address some forms of temporal reasoning within normative MAS, focusing on the combination of temporal logics with multi-modal multi-agent logics. We suggest perspectives on how these combinations can be used for modelling aspects of time within lawful provisions, obligations, and legal principles. The main contributions are the new variant of deontic tense logic using hybrid logic, and the combination of time and obligations.
