Law

... looks into questions such as ...

  • What is law?
  • Does law apply always and to everyone and is the same everywhere in the world?
  • Is law always fair?
  • What are the differences between private law, criminal law and public law?
  • How does society resolve disputes?
  • What I enjoy best is opening the newspaper and thinking: ‘Cool, we discussed a similar case only the other day!’
