Law is a fascinating subject to study. Laws are vital to the functioning of society, and impact every aspect of our lives.
From the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215 through to the suffragettes’ campaigns for votes for women in the early 1900s, to laws debated in parliament today, UK law is a fascinating mix of the historic, the traditional, the modern and the current. At best, the law serves to uphold the principles of truth and justice. In that sense, law is much more than a subject of study; it is the foundation of any civilised nation.
