Law vs. Policy

Key Differences

Law is a legal system established and enforced by governmental or social institutions, binding in nature. Policy, on the other hand, is a set of guidelines or principles adopted by an organization or government, which are not legally binding but are followed to maintain order and consistency.

Laws are created through legislation, judicial rulings, and social customs, and have legal consequences if violated. Policies are developed by organizations or governmental bodies to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes but typically do not have legal consequences.

The scope of law is broad, governing societal behavior and ensuring justice and order, applicable to everyone under its jurisdiction. Policy generally has a narrower scope, specific to an organization or sector, guiding internal decisions and operations.

Laws are enforced by the judiciary and law enforcement agencies, with penalties for non-compliance. Policies are enforced internally within an organization or institution, with different forms of accountability, but not legal penalties.

Changing a law requires legislative action or judicial interpretation, often a lengthy process. Policies, however, can be more easily adapted or changed by the organization or governing body that set them, allowing for more flexibility.
