What would a country or the world be without laws and legal systems in place? Law is the system of rules which a particular country or community recognises to keep in check and regulate the actions of its members. It is according to these laws that the country or community enforces penalties and punishments to maintain order in the society. While political entities and social behaviour are shaped by law, law itself is formulated drawing from but not restricting itself to the social mores, customs and practices of its people.
