The law and its norms

Among the many rules that exist in human society, there are special, which the state establishes. Such rules are called “norms of law”.

So what is this right? This word has two meanings. On the one hand, the right is understood as an opportunity for a person to do something: each of you has the right to study free of charge at school, to be treated in health care institutions, to apply to state authorities to protect their interests. Your parents have the right to own property, including housing, the right to receive a salary in a timely manner, your grandparents have the right to receive a pension.

The ability of a person to meet their needs by law is called subjective law.

On the other hand, the term right has one more, broader meaning. Objective law is called the system of obligatory, formally defined norms, rules of conduct, which are established and supported by the state and regulate important social relations. It is this right studying jurisprudence

On the basis of the given definition it is possible to distinguish certain features, inherent in the law and its norms. First, law regulates the most general, most important relations between people, institutions, organizations, the state in situations that are repeatedly repeated and affect many participants in public life. The right is a manifestation of the will of the state, only it can introduce legal norms.

It is important to note that the rules of law have a systemic character, a system of norms. Moreover, the norms enshrined in various legal acts do not exist independently of one another, they are consistent with each other, cannot contradict each other, and on the contrary – they must be mutually supplemented. The state not only introduces legal norms, but also ensures their compliance, using for this purpose a coercive device if necessary. Consequently, the state guarantees the observance of the rules of law.

Unlike many other rules, the rules of law are generally binding on all those who are in the territory of the state that adopted them, regardless of desire, attitude to the law and the state. Another important feature of the law of law is their formal certainty. This means that the rules of law are fixed in the strict rules and rules of conduct, which are submitted mainly in special documents.
