Oswal CBSE Text Book Of Legal Studies For Class XII by Oswal Publishers
Laws are rules, regulations and restrictions that apply to all members of the society. Laws define how people should behave or conduct themselves, and provide sanctions and deterrents against improper and destructive behaviour. They help to organise our societies, maintain order, ensure our safety and prevent infringements of our rights. Without laws, societies would descend into lawlessness, anarchy and violence. In a democratic society, laws are created by representatives of the people (parliaments) and independent judges and magistrates (courts).
The importance of learning about the essential nature of law and the concerned legal systems cannot be overstated. Familiarity with law enhances one's understanding of public affairs and provides a clearer idea about one's rights and obligations as a citizen. Another advantage is that an understanding of law can undoubtedly encourage talented students to pursue a career in law-an objective which is laudable in its own right.
The syllabus of this course as well as the content of this book is framed in a way that has objectives beyond aspiring one to undertake a formal law degree upon graduating from Grade XII. The materials presented offers basic background on what law is all about both in domestic as well as international contexts and serves to benefit those interested in pursuing a law degree.
