What is Law?
Law is a set or system of rules that are created and are enforceable by social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior or conduct. These rules are recognized as binding by every individual concerned. It has been variously described as a science and the art of justice.
In other words, Law is the system of rules which a particular country or community recognizes as regulating the actions of its members and which it may enforce by the imposition of penalties.
What is Rule of Law?
The rule of law is the political philosophy, mechanism and practice that supports the fact that all citizens and institutions within a country, state, or community are equal and accountable to the same laws, including lawmakers, the rich and political leaders.
