Every society comprises people with different approaches and attitudes towards life. There exist varied perceptions which may often result in a difference in the actions taken by people in pursuance of their respective perceptions. However, these varying actions might result in different impacts on society, all of which are not necessarily good. According to Roscoe Pound’s theory of ‘social engineering’ the interests of the individuals should be handled in such a way that they should be able to act freely but to the extent that the common interest of society is preserved (McManaman, 1958). This is where the role of law is activated to regulate the acts of the individuals so that they should not act in a way that society is harmed.
