Overview - Rule of Law. More than years ago, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay published a series of essays promoting the ratification of the United States Constitution now known as Federalist Papers.

In explaining the need for an independent judiciary, Alexander Hamilton noted in The Federalist # 78 that the federal courts "were designed to be an intermediate body. Rule of law, the mechanism, process, institution, practice, or norm that supports the equality of all citizens before the law, secures a nonarbitrary form of government, and more generally prevents the arbitrary use of ariness is typical of various forms of despotism, absolutism, authoritarianism, and ic governments include even highly institutionalized forms.

In a broader sense Rule of Law means that Law is supreme and is above every individual. notion of the rule of law is perhaps the most powerful and often repeated political ideal in contemporary global discourse.

Everyone, it seems, is for the rule of law. The rule of law is a major source of legitimation for governments in the modern world.

A government that abides by the rule of law is seen as good and worthy of respect. In "The Law of the Jungle", a number of rules are laid out, although we are told that there are "hundreds and hundreds" more, plus these are only the rules that are followed by or pertain to wolves.

David Kaplan, in his recent book, called the U.S. Supreme Court “the most dangerous branch” of government, one that is mounting an “assault on the Constitution.” 32 When an independent judiciary in a nation that is perceived as the paragon of the rule of law can be viewed as an enemy of the Constitution, the line between the rule of law.

The international rule of law is often seen as a centerpiece of the modern international order. It is routinely reaffirmed by governments, international organizations, scholars, and activists, who credit it with reducing the recourse to war, preserving human rights, and constraining (albeit imperfectly) the pursuit of state self-interests.

However, all judicial decisions must rest upon and incorporate some preexisting legal rules and the rationale or policy behind those rules. When the source of a rule is decisional law, keep in mind that a rule might not be stated explicitly or completely in a single case or group of cases; rather, it must be drawn out from the factual context.

From the sprawling remnants of the Soviet empire to the southern tip of Africa, attempts are underway to replace arbitrary political regimes with governments constrained by the rule of law.

Rule of law - Rule of law - Challenges to the rule of law: Anyone who holds that what matters most in politics is having the right people in power and not how power should be constrained will be unconvinced of the value of the rule of law.

Neither will anyone who believes that institutions of public power are merely instruments of the ruling class that need to be dismantled rather than merely. Lord Bingham’s book built upon an academic paper which he had delivered four years earlier in and in which he had looked at what exactly is meant by the rule of law.

The rule of recognition, as a social fact, aids in understanding how social rules make up a system of law in two ways. First, it serves as an ultimate rule that links rules to form a system as it identifies the conditions under which new rules are made and provides the basis for determining whether any social rule is a legal rule.

Second, it bestows authority on specific rules as laws since. The Rule of Law, enforced by the courts, is the ultimate controlling factor on which our constitution is based.
