Rules & Regulations


“…it seems like we have laws, rules, and regulations to oversee just about everything.  We don’t always like these rules, since they often mean that someone is telling us what to do, or keeping us from doing what we want.  Yet to live in a civil society, we must have some rules to follow.  Laws are rules that bind all people living in a community.  Laws protect our general safety, and ensure our rights as citizens against abuses by other people, by organizations, and by the government itself.” – The Judicial Learning Center
