The rule of law has to offer a remedy for clashes of interests between individuals. However, the function of the rule of law is influenced by social factors, which depends on the specific characteristics of the society wherein it functions. For accessing the rule of law, individuals need specific means in order to resolve disputes arising from these clashes of interests.
