1. Law is a system of rules that people in a society must follow. It ensures that everyone is treated fairly and helps to keep society orderly. 2. It allows people to settle disputes peacefully. For example, if two people claim to own the same piece of property, they can go to court to decide who really owns it. 3. It allows people to enforce contracts. Without law, people could not enforce contracts with each other or with businesses. 4. It helps people to understand their rights and responsibilities. Law explains how people must behave and what punishments they will receive if they break the law.
5. It is a source of scholarly inquiry into legal history, philosophy and economic analysis. It also raises complex questions about equity, justice and fairness.
6. Lawyers have the chance to work for interesting clients. Law can be a very rewarding career for anyone who is willing to put in the time and effort to succeed. Lawyers often have great salaries and benefits, including health insurance and one or two vacations per year.
7. Law cannot impose behaviours that are impossible, as it is dependent on the shape of the physical world and the limitations inherent in humans’ minds. It is therefore possible to have a coherent, unified and coherent theory of law.
The study of law involves a wide range of subjects, which are divided into three categories for convenience, though they intertwine and overlap. Labour law is the study of a tripartite industrial relationship between workers, employers and trade unions, civil procedure is the set of rules that govern the way in which trials and appeals proceed and evidence law is about what materials can be used in a trial.
