Law Definition & Examples


Hello English explorers! Today, I am going to talk about a legal vocabulary word.

The word is law. The definition is as follows:

The combination of those rules and principles of conduct promulgated by legislative authority, derived from court decisions, and established by local custom. A body of rules of conduct of binding legal force and effect, prescribed, recognized, and enforced by controlling authority.

For example:

  • The highest law in the United States is the U.S. Constitution.

That is what the word law means. Leave comments below if you have any questions or additional comments.
