In the past when I created this page, I made a separate page for law and laws. I think this distinction needs to be made a little clearer on this page. In my mind, law is the field and how the related legal system works and what ideologies etc are behind it. Laws are the rules they relate to. I know this goes against the general practice for Cunnan of not using plural nouns for page titles, but I felt they needed separate pages. - Cian Gillebhrath 11:16, 26 Apr 2006 (EST)

Aren't SCA "laws" better described as rules as they are not backed by a government?--User 144 22:26, 8 March 2007 (EST)

Probably true, but they are called Laws, at least at the Kingdom level. So whether or not the name is, strictly speaking, accurate, it is in use. AlexandreDavigne 00:20, 9 March 2007 (EST)
I suspect that anything in the Corpora is regarded by the mundane court as a by-law of a registered organization. Any kingdom or society handbooks, or declarations by the Crown are more procedural practises/standing orders. But in the SCA we try not to confuse the layman and just call them all laws. Rules makes it sound like the SCA is a game :^P . - Cian Gillebhrath 09:31, 9 March 2007 (EST)
