Why law is important and why we need it


Can you imagine the world without the laws? Here you will find three major reasons as to why the law is important in our life Those reasons also shows why we need law in our life.

Why law is important

Law is important because the law establishes and controls public power, facilitates and regulates private and public relations, law solves disputes and maintains peace and order in our society by specifying the do’s and the dont’s in our daily conduct.

We need law in our life from the demands for a well-governed society, the need to have a well-organized public power, the demand for a peaceful society, and the desire to have a well-structured system that governs and regulates individuals in societies.

The following are the major reasons why the law is important in our life:

Law has a role in the structure of public power.

With this function, the law expresses or establishes public power (the state). Law also structures and controls the exercise of power. It is the law that puts in place the organs of the public power and sets the limits on the same. Law plays the role of recognizing basic human rights and sets the duties of the people in the societies they live.

Therefore, by meeting this important role, law structures the public powers for the benefit and good of both classes in the societies mainly, the ruling class and the ruled.

Law facilitates and regulates private relations.

With the advancement of technology and improvements in modes of productions, there have been tremendous changes in social and economic relations among individuals.

A conducive environment that would make the new socio-economic relations operate was a must and that environment was to be laid down by rules and laws that would attract for example fair contractual relations, or property ownership relations. In these, we get the law of contract and law of property, etc.

Law solves disputes in society

This is a well-known function of the law.  In any living and growing society where members of that particular society interact in day-to-day activities, conflicts are inevitable.

Therefore, it is for the law to resolve these emerging conflicts and restore the status quo in society. Through this role, peace is restored and makes people focus on production activities and living peacefully.

This is done by the state through the law to set institutions like courts of law and other bodies to resolve disputes.
