Since law will become elevated in importance, it is also important for Mosiah to distinguish good laws from bad.
Good laws may come from good kings, such as Benjamin and Mosiah, but bad kings may enact bad laws. Thus Mosiah will propose more than just a rule by law. He must proclaim a new method of creating law, a method that may have the opportunity of creating good laws in spite of the reality of good and bad people.
This mechanism will be the judges by the voice of the people. This participation of the people is seen as the way in which the good should be preserved and the bad avoided.
