Law is mainly defined as the set of rules, customs, and practices of a particular country or
community, enforced through social and governmental institutions,in order to regulate actions and
behaviors of its people. Norm on the other hand, is generally the standard, pattern, or acceptable
behaviors, within a specific group or culture. And with the said definition of the two, it’s noticeable that
both laws and norms have their share of similarity or connection with each other, in which they’re both
present in societies in order to maintain peace, unity, and organization, as well as to prevent or lessen
harm, issues, and chaotic incidents. However, in a much clearer and specific sense, laws are actually
under the norms, specifically, they are social norms that have become formally inscribed at the state or
federal level, which can result in formal punishments.
