What is Law?
Law is a system of rules that a society or government creates in order to keep people safe and orderly. It can include laws against crime, business agreements, and social relationships.
Law can also refer to a career in this field. There are many different professions that deal with the law, including lawyers and judges.
There are several different theories of how the law works. One is called the “will theory of rights” which is based on the idea that a person’s rights give them a measure of control over their own actions.
Another is the “demand theory of rights” which is based on the idea that if a person has a right to something, then they are entitled to get it.
The third is the “preemptory theory of rights” which is based on a idea that a person has a right to do something if it is reasonable for them to do it.
The preemptory quality of rights is that they trump certain other reasons (Hart 1982: 86, 253-4). This preemptory quality makes them so-called “stringent” rights in that they exclude a large number of conflicting considerations but rarely all of them.
