Law in its generic sense is, and has throughout the ages - albeit in primitive communities only in embryo form - been so indispensible a part of the fabric of society that it has, as it were, today become such an accepted commonplace as curiously enough sometimes to give rise to a measure of confusion. For instance, to many laymen, the term ""law"" often connotes only the criminal law. On the other hand, the expression ""the rule of law"" has for some years past increasingly tended in various parts of the world to be used as conveying, or being closely associated with, implications of an essentially political nature.
