What is the value of law for an individual and society?
The social value of law for society lies in the settlement of controversial and conflict issues. The rule of law as such cannot exist without a clearly defined and specific law. The law can not only regulate legal relationships, but also prevent their occurrence in disputable situations (for example, in a dispute that has arisen, a citizen points out to another that he is wrong and he does not go to court, but resolves the issue peacefully).
The individual himself can use the right to prevent controversial issues and to prove his innocence in those. Knowing about wrongdoing, a citizen is less likely to commit a crime and will try to prevent other citizens from committing crimes. If other citizens act against the law in relation to themselves, the individual will be able to “put them in their place”, including by using the law.
