Lady Justice’s story originates from a Greek Goddess named Justitia. It became a symbol of justice during emperor’s August’s rule. The scales represent the strength of the case. It shows that a case should be measured by the weight of it’s evidence on its own. Since the 16th century Lady Justice has been shown as wearing a blindfold. This is based on the ideal that justice should be dealt with no regard to power, wealth, or any other status. The sword illustrated authority in ancient times. Today it conveys that justice is powerful, swift and final. Lady Justice’s toga symbolizes the philosophical attitude that embodies justice. The book serves as a reminder of the Constitution which our justice system was born from.
