Briefly Law:

For a society law and justice is like breathing, as when everything is fine we do not notice it happening. We only feel its existence and have confidence in its function. The existence and continuation of the rule of law requires there to be firms associated with lawyers who have good knowledge of law, justice, and never separate themselves from justice, honesty, virtuousness and respectability.
