Administration of justice is one of the most essential and primary functions of a State. Justice is a concept of moral rightness based on ethics, rationality, law, natural law, religion, fairness, or equity, along with the punishment of the breach of said ethics. The terms most frequently used by lawyers in the praise or condemnation of law or its administration are the words ‘just’ and ‘unjust’ and very often they write as if the ideas of justice and morality were coextensive. To clear the confusion, there are various theories of Justice put forth by different jurists such as Aristotle, Dworkin, Rawls etc. This Article firstly deals with the pros and cons of the theories and concept of justice and also explains its relation with law. It is analytical and descriptive in nature and doctrinal in approach.
