LAW AND PSYCHOLOGY

If you wish to be a good leader, have an all-round personality. Read psychology, philosophy, history, anthropology, sociology, finest works, scriptures and even law.

DEFINITIONS

LAW

Law as a science/subject is multi-dimensional in nature because this three-letter word has many definitions and many interpretations. When a layman hears the term law he/she starts imagining courts,advocates,police officers & judges etc. If further asked to describe in few words they may come up with terms like regulations, ordinances, statutes, justice etc. Till now there is no exhaustive definition of the term law which is universally accepted. However many jurists across the world have tried to define law based on source, effect, purpose, nature and many other factors.

Renowned jurist John Austin who joined the army and served as an army officer for five years defined law as a command of sovereign backed by sanction, also his Austinian concept of law reflected the strict discipline he had imbibed after being a part of the army. Another famous jurist John Salmond stated that law is a body of principles that is recognized and applied by the state in administration of justice. From the aforementioned definitions it can be observed that jurists tried defining law on somewhat similar terms but used different terms to do the same. In my view, this is one very inquisitive feature of the law that it has many meanings yet everyone has somewhat similar terms to define it.

PSYCHOLOGY

Psychology can be defined by breaking the term into two Greek words “psyche” that means soul and “logos” meaning science or study of a subject, thus it is the study of soul or mind. It is a knowledge discipline that keeps on evolving so now the definition has become much more dynamic and inclusive in nature. Now psychology is viewed as a science which studies mental processes, experiences and behavior in different contexts like conative,cognitive and emotional.
