Introduction to Law
Why study law?
Laws regulate our lives. We must know what are our rights, duties, responsibilities and what we can do and cannot do (obligations) so that other people would not be hurt or injured.
By knowing the laws, we can protect ourselves from doing wrongs to other people or prevent ourselves from being used by others.
Law is not the same as justice. Justice refers to fairness or rightfulness. Justice is about moral value (good or right). Law is there to help the achievement of justice.
For business people, law is important. Law helps to ensure that the business people conduct a business in a proper and just manner and that it is done for the good or benefit of the people who use the product or service offered by the business. People should not be injured or suffered losses for using the goods or services.
