Wikipedia Edit I contributed to mostly:

Justice is a collective name which can be divided into two broad perspectives. Just behavior; a concern for genuine respect and treatment, which is to be regarded as fair and equal. The Administration of Law; which ordains legislation composed by a judge or magistrate of a supreme court to a country or state, with objectives to protect the victims and pursue the perpetrators lawfully.

Retributive justice regulates proportionate response to crime proven by lawful evidence, so that punishment is justly imposed and considered as morally-correct and fully deserved. The lex talionis (law of retaliation) is a military theory of retributive justice, which says that proper punishment should be equal to the wrong suffered; "life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, wound for wound, stripe for stripe."[1]

Distributive justice is directed at the proper allocation of things - wealth, power, reward, respect - between different people. A number of important questions surrounding justice have been fiercely debated over the course of western history: What is justice? What does it demand of individuals and societies? What is the proper distribution of wealth and resources in society: equal, meritocratic, according to status, or some other arrangement?[2] There is a myriad of possible answers to these questions from divergent perspectives on the political and philosophical spectrum.

Oppressive Law exercises an authoritarian approach to legislation which is totally unrelated to justice, a tyrannical interpetation of law is one in where the population lives under restriction from unlawful legislation.
