What is Law?


Law is a system of rules that are created and enforced by social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior.

It is often described as a science or an art of justice.

Professional careers in the field include lawyers, judges and legal advisers. They are trained through specified processes to achieve distinct professional identity. Lawyers are constituted in office by legal forms of appointment and are required to have a qualification (such as a Bachelor of Laws, a Bachelor of Civil Law or a Juris Doctor degree).


A “law” is a rule that binds people and societies together. It is an indisputable fact about the way that things work, but it does not explain why they happen.

An example of this is Boyle’s law, which describes what will happen to the volume of an ideal gas when its pressure changes and temperature remains the same.

The word “law” also refers to a group of laws that have been established through the legislative process or by court precedent in common law jurisdictions, and is usually used synonymously with legislation.

The law is a complex and evolving process that may be defined by a constitution or by judicial decision. It is an important mediator of social relations and serves as a guide for achieving equality and fairness.
