The law affects all aspects of our life. It protects us right from the mother’s womb to our education, service, marriage and other important events of life. Law plays a major role in our everyday lives, right from buying a newspaper or a bottle of milk or any other big or small item necessary for our life. The law is so important for our life that it becomes necessary to understand various aspects of the law.
The Laws are the dictates by which the State governs its prospects/people but are also binding on the State. By enacting the law, the State also undertakes to obey them. But laws are not enacted for their sake. There has to be a clear purpose behind each piece of enacted law because all laws by their very nature have the tendency to impose some restrictions or mount some obligation on someone or other. Hence, introducing Law at senior secondary level shall equip learners with basic information in the legal domain that affects them daily. It will also help them to execute their duties while protecting their own and other’s rights.
