The issues of law , morality and justice have always been inter-related to one another. Morality involved the questions of origin of law and the reasons for the exixtence of law. Justice, on the other hand, reflects the outcome of the process of implementation of laws. This work is focusing on the relationship between law and morality. history tells us that basically scholars are divided into two groups. First, those who strongly commited on the importance of morality in the formulation and functioning of law. Second, those whose primary concern is the porcess of the making of law itself. A set of law is a good law when the promulgation and enactment of which is in concert with the process acceptable by the system prevalent in a given period of time. This is so despite the fact that the law itself may be repugnant to the making of law is, from the example. Fuller , being a natural lawyes, believed that law and morality ceases to be law. Hart on the other hand believed that the law is the law;it remains good even though it might not meet the demand of eternal moral criteria.
