Q: what's the rule of law? Im a business major and struggle to understand what it is especially in this case
The "rule of law" to me means that in the conduct of our nation's affairs, we follow rules, rather than be governed by the whims of a dictator. The phrase could also refer to the rule that governs the outcome of a particular case.
Your question is more of a definitional question than a legal issue. Try an internet search and you may find a better definition on a dictionary website.
A: It is not clear on what you are asking, but the "Rule of Law" is what individuals, business entities as well as government institutions are required to abide by, provided that these laws are known to the general public, and are fairly enforced by an independent judiciary. I hope this helps.
