Section 1 of the South African constitution prescribes the rule of law as one of the seminal values on which the constitution is founded. The concept of the rule of law is a fundamental value that underlies "an open and democratic society based on dignity, equality and freedom", and must be promoted when interpreting the provisions of the bill of rights. It is important to understand the history and significance of this term in order to evaluate its significance in the new constitutional dispensation in South Africa.
