In a society ancient or modern, law helps to provide justice to the people who are in need of it. Law and justice are closely related to each other. In a society, if there is absence of law it will lead to chaos. It will disturb the peace and harmony of the surroundings, leading to disputes or fights. Law regulates the behavior of the people. Law is the help given to a victim to help him lead a better life. The concept of law does not originate from beyond the boundaries of society. In actuality, it is a fundamental tenet of society. The law is what is good, equal, and fair in accordance with society, and it symbolises those norms. Every culture has its own laws, yet these laws change as social standards change. Law is essential to society for several key reasons, to enforce laws such as personal laws, contract laws, regulatory laws, anti-prohibition laws, and others to control how individuals behave in conformity with social norm. In a particular civilization, the material circumstances influence how the law develops. According to this theory, the history of modes and relations of production is linked to the history of law
