Law in General

Strong law systems within Nations are an essential foundation for a strong system of law for the World. In both instances “law System” includes law rules, law institutions, such as courts, arbitration and other peaceful mechanisms of dispute settlement, and a reasonably regulated police force.
That humans and humans run Nations disagree and make mistakes is a fact of life that will never change. The major need is to channel decisions on disagreement into the law’s processes, procedures and institutions, so that they may be decided peacefully rather than by archaic and ancient method of decision by force, the ultimate being decision by death of human beings.

So LAW can be defined as a system of rules and procedures employed by organized society to regulate the conduct of people in that society, in other words it s a ser of rules established by a governing authority to institute and maintain orderly coexistence. Most legal philosophers believe that for law to be considered enforceable it must serve the good of society as a whole. Others believe that law is whatever the rules say it is and no more. The original root of law comes from Bible, in which the first writings of what is good and evil were detailed for all to read. For example, the phrase “eye for an eye” can be found in the early teachings.

Then in the middle Ages, law was considered to have been dictated by Divine Will, and revealed to wise men. The most ancient legal precedents and customs were considered to be the best law, and much of Continental Europe wound up modeling secular law after the old Roman law. In Byzantium, secular and scared laws were somewhat intermingled, with secular law taking precedence. In Western Europe, however, religious and secular laws were separate bodies. Church law was known as Canon Law, and applied to the clergy, to the secular world in matters of administration of the Sacraments such as marriage, and to the immunity of the clergy from secular law. This is the root of the conflict between Church and State.
St. Augustine arranged the law thru three levels:

  1. Devine law, a perfect system comprehended thru faith and reason
  2. Natural law, which could be understood by all creatures, lacked the perfection of faith, and could be improved by philosophy
  3. Temporal (secular) law, obedience to which was enjoined on all Christians, save where it conflicted with Divine or Canon Law.

In its most general and comprehensive sense, law signifies a rule of action, and is applied indiscriminately to all kinds of action; whether animate or inanimate, rational or irrational. In its more confined sense, law denotes the rule, not of actions in general, but of human action or conduct.
Law is generally divided into four principle classes, namely: Natural law; the law of nations; Public law, Private or civil law.

When considered in relation to its origin, it is statute law or common law. When examined as to its different systems it is divided into civil law, common law, and canon law. When applied to objects, it is civil, criminal or penal.
It is also divided into natural law and positive law. Into written law, lex scripta; and unwritten law, lex non-scripta. Into law merchant, material law, municipal law and foreign law. When considered as to their duration, laws are immutable and arbitrary or positive. When viewed as to their effect, they are prospective and show.
