Overview of the College

It is a system of rules created and enforced by social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior. Although its precise definition is a subject of long-term debate. It has been described differently as the science and art of justice. Laws enforced by the state can be issued through a collective legislative body or by a single legislator, resulting in statutes. They can also be enacted by the executive authority through decrees and regulations or decided by judges through precedents, usually in judicial jurisdictions for public law. Individuals can create legally binding contracts, including arbitration agreements that may opt for alternative dispute resolution instead of regular court proceedings. The formation of laws itself may be influenced by a written or implicit constitution and the rights enshrined in it. Law shapes politics, economics, history, and society in various ways and serves as a mediator for relationships between people
