It defines, through development, a just system of laws and then demonstrates how such law facilitates a free society. Bastiat was a French classical liberal theorist, political economist, and member of the French assembly.

Escrito no ano da morte do autor, A lei é um bom diagnóstico da situação da França pós-revolucionária com relação as ideias de lei e justiça promovida por certos filósofos. Para ele, a Lei deve proteger o indivíduo, a liberdade, e a propriedade privada. Infelizmente, essa mesma lei pode ser pervertida e posta a serviço de interesses particulares, tornando-se, então, um instrumento de espoliação. É dessa maneira que Bastiat analisa o funcionamento do Estado, esta "grande ficção através da qual todos se esforçam para viver às custas dos demais".
