Law (Legal Studies)

About Law (Legal Studies):

Law, or legal studies, comes into contact with almost every area of human life, touching upon issues relating to business, economics, politics, the environment, human rights, international relations and trade. It is telling that the first academic degrees developed were all related to law. As a law student, you can expect to learn how to tackle some of the most problematic – indeed, often seemingly irresolvable – conflicts and issues in modern society and morality. In providing a framework through which to examine and understand different societies and cultures, law degrees are a useful way to prepare not only for specific legal careers, but for a broad range of professional roles – and indeed, for life in general.

Law is a system of rules, conduct or procedure which is necessary for establishing and maintaining a disciplined society. It is established by custom, agreement, or authority and is enforced through a set of institutions. It shapes politics, economics and society in various ways and acts as the best social mediator in relations between people.
