The rule of law is the idea that in order for a society to function smoothly and fairly, all its members agree to abide by a common set of rules, called “the law.”
The rule of law means that everyone is subject to the law. No one, no matter how important, how rich, how educated, or how powerful, is above the law. Laws apply to everyone equally, including those in positions of power. In Canada, that includes all levels and branches of the government, legislature, Parliament, the Senate, the Prime Minister, the police, lawyers, judges, the Lieutenant Governors, the Governor General, and even the Queen.
In this course the educator will discuss the mechanisms to uphold the rule of law.
Throughout history, social justice has helped to shape laws and policies to achieve greater equality.
