Definition of Law

What is Law?

Law is a system of rules developed and enforced by societal or governmental entities to control conduct behavior. Everyone involved acknowledges this set of guidelines as being legally binding. Both science and art also abide by this Law.

To put it another way, a law is a set of guidelines that a nation or society acknowledges as governing the conduct of its citizens and that it has the power to enforce through the enforcement of sanctions.

All citizens and institutions within a nation, state, or community are equal and subject to the same laws, according to the political philosophy, system, and practice known as the rule of law. This includes lawmakers, the wealthy, and political leaders.

LL.B. or B.L.(Bachelor of Laws) is the name of an undergraduate law degree (or a first professional degree in law, depending on the jurisdiction).
