Every human society has a legal system, because every society must attempt to resolve the basic conflict between the needs of the individual and those of the community. Law is not synonymous with justice, although it has been described as "part of Western man's dream of a life governed by reason."

Most of continental Europe, Scotland, Central and South America, parts of Asia (Taiwan, fo...
