The order or pattern of rules that society uses to govern the conduct of individuals and their relationships is called law. A. Nature of Law and Legal Rights 1. Legal Rights: a right is a legal capacity to require another person to perform or refrain from performing an act. A duty is an obligation of law imposed on a person to perform or refrain from performing a certain act. Duties and rights coexist. 2. Individual Rights: The US Constitution gives individuals certain rights. The rights include the right to freedom of speech, the right to due process, and the right to vote. 3. The Right of Privacy: One very important individual legal right is the right of privacy, which has two components. The first is the right to be secure against unreasonable searches and seizures by the government. The second aspect of the right of privacy protects individuals against intrusions by others. 4. Privacy and Technology: Technology creates new situations that may require the application of new rules of law.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
