Written by: Rubab Ali

In this article, you will know:

  • What is Law (LLB)
  • Laws are rules established by an authority, custom or agreement to regulate the actions of people and usually backed up by the imposition of penalties.
  •  Law is made up of enacted law which are laws that are passed through parliament in the form of statutes, written law which is law that has been established through court cases in the form of common law and delegated law which is made by local councils, government agencies or other bodies.
  • Law can be enforceable by courts, which is called public law, or simply for regulating behaviour within private relationships (contracts), which is called private law.
  • The Law is whatever is enacted or approved by the government officials for a certain area. It can be written in law books or just customs.
  • We live in a world of increasing economic and social complexity. The law is an attempt to solve problems that arise in this complexity.
  • The law is therefore a huge body of knowledge about how to solve the problems that arise in our society. Yet most people are indifferent to it, few think about it, and even fewer understand it.
  • Law is like some of the other things people need to know about but don’t: finance, medicine, plumbing, computer networking, and so on. If you have no interest in these subjects, you can still get by. You can hire people who know about them; you can use standard systems developed by experts you trust; you can get by with a combination of ignorance and luck.
