Advantages of Law - 

      There are many Advantages of law... some of the them  are as follows :

1) Uniformity and Certainty:

                           Law provides Uniformity and certainty to the administration of justice.  The same law has to be applied in all cases. There can be no distinction between one case and another case if the facts are the same.

2) Protection against arbitrary, biased and dishonest decisions:

         If the administration of Justice is left completely to the individual discretion of a judge, improper motives and dishonest opinions could affect the distribution of justice. Law as Fixed Principles of the law of justice avoids the danger of arbitrary, biased and dishonest decisions.

3) Freedom from errors of individual judgement:

                 The fixed principles of law protect the administration of justice from the errors of individual judgement. Commenting on this aspect of law, the Greek Philosopher Aristotle observed that "to seek to be wiser than the law is the very thing which is by good laws forbidden."  This, in other words, means that "law is not always necessarily wise but on the whole and in the long run it is wiser than those who administer it".

 4) Reliability :

             There is another advantage of law is its reliability. It is more reliable than the individual judgements of the Courts. The human mind is fallible and judges are no exception. The wisdom of the legislature which represents the wisdom of the people is safer and more reliable means of protection than the momentary fancy of the individual judge.
