The Importance of National Law

national law

National law is the body of rules which govern the activity of a state. National laws are established and administered by courts. When companies violate national laws, they may lose their licenses. It is the main legal framework for protection activities. It is also important to note that a state may have its own laws governing its own citizens.

Fortunately, there are various online resources that allow you to find and study national laws. For example, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) maintains a collection of national laws on human rights and related subjects, such as hate crimes and human trafficking. Many of these law-related resources are freely available and include links to print and online scholarly commentary.

Incorporating international treaties and norms into national law involves a process called transformation. In some states, ratification is required before a treaty can be given effect, while in others, it may require legislative action. In other words, the United States ratified the UN Charter, but the treaty itself was enacted by the UN.

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities prohibits all forms of discrimination against people with disabilities. It guarantees equal protection in all areas, including employment, education, and health. The UNCRPD also requires national governments to incorporate international legal obligations into their national law.
