Law is Order

Aristotle famously characterized the nature of law when he observed that “law is order, and good law is good order.” If only it were that simple. As we’ve seen throughout this course, law is complex. Sometimes the complexity is in the rules themselves. Other times it is in their underlying policies or the conflicting motivations of politicians involved in their creation. Then there is the vexing problem that some issues simply do not lend themselves to easy solutions – sometimes the best solution the law can realistically offer is what I often refer to as the least bad option. Select a current event or topic related to one of the areas of law we examined in this course. Examine it in relation to Aristotle’s observation that “law is order, and good law is good order.” Obviously, there is no right or wrong way to approach this.
