                The benefit of studying law as a social science is to see how it relates to society as a whole.

The law is a central authority hanging over top of all citizens in the area that the law covers.   Most people acknowledge this, which gives weight to the law and its power over the people.  That is one explanation to why people follow, or obey the law.  However, there are many other reasons why someone might obey the law.  I know for me personally, I follow many laws due to my morals and ethics.  The law isn’t the reason I don’t do drugs, or rob a bank, or (to get a bit extreme) commit murder.  I don’t do those things because I think it’s wrong, and that’s the bottom line on those.  Anothe

Law is a key factor in our everyday life.  Many aspects of it involve law without most people even realizing it.  Think about, for example, when you drive.  Before you even start the car most people put on their seatbelt.  This is partly due to safety, but also because it is a law that one must wear a seatbelt in a vehicle.  Also when we start driving we drive on the right hand side of the road, and go a certain speed.  This is all because of the laws that are set in place.  The Law also structures how society works.
