Galactic law

Redirected from Galactic Law

Galactic law was the system of law, parallel to international law on Earth, upheld by many interstellar governments in Mutter's Spiral. It was enforced by several species, including the Judoon, the Atraxi, and the Megara. (TV: Smith and Jones, The Eleventh Hour, The Stones of Blood) The Galactic Alliance were keen upholders of galactic law. (TV: From Raxacoricofallapatorius With Love)

Important documents of galactic law include the Shadow Proclamation (TV: Partners in Crime) and the Galactic Charter. (TV: The Stones of Blood)
