Law is a system of rules, usually imposed through a Government or Institution and is applied to govern a group people. It shapes politics, economics and society in numerous ways.

Law can be classified under different categories.


 Lady Justice

Lady Justice or Justitia is the Roman Goddess of Justice. It is a personification of the moral force that underlies the legal system. Her blindfolded eyes symbolize equality under the law and impartiality towards all the people who are governed by it. The weighing scales represent the balancing of people's interests under the law, and her sword denotes the law's force of reason.

The statue of the Lady of Justice can be seen in all the Courts of Law, the world over.

Some of the common laws that govern us are…

  • The age at which a person can vote
  • Specific age for marriage
  • Laws governing the selling and buying of property

The list is long and extensive. Now that we know that laws are a system of rules there are a few things that we have to know.
