Justice can be equated with fairness and moral rightness, a system of law in which every person receives his/her due from the system including all rights, both natural and legal.

As the concept of justice has a distinct meaning to different individuals, there are various justice being exhibited in our society today.

One of them is UTILITARIAN JUSTICE which is a form of consequentialism, where punishment is forward-looking justified by the ability to achieve future social benefits resulting in crime reduction.

The moral worth of an action is determined by its outcome.

Another variation is RETRIBUTIVE JUSTICE which regulates proportionate response to crime proven by lawful evidence so that punishment is justly imposed and considered as morally correct and fully deserved.

However, we have Restorative justice which is concerned not so much with retribution and punishment as with making the victim whole and reintegrating the offender into society.

This approach frequently brings an offender and a victim together, so that the offender can learn about the effect his/her offense had on the victim.

One other variation of justice is the Distribution justice which illiterate directly at the proper allocation of things -wealth, power, reward, respect- among different people.

Egalitarianism is another principle of justice. It is the demand that everybody should be treated equally without privileged classes or sects for it posits that the circumstances of one's birth, family connection, wealth, or influence should not be the determining factors in the application of the laws of the state; hence, egalitarianism does not recognize natural privileges, but this is not to say that citizens cannot confer privileges on those they trust.

The popular image for Justice depicted by Lady Justice explains justice as equipped with three symbols: a sword symbolizing the court's coercive power; a human scale weighing competing for claims in each hand; and a blindfold indicating impartiality.
