Law The British Academy

Law is the system of rules that govern society. The rules may range from those prohibiting certain forms of conduct (e.g. criminal law) through those which enable the achievement of social goals in particular ways (e.g. contracts) to those which give political authority to our institutions (e.g. constitutional law) or allow us to call government to account (e.g. judicial review).
