In law and ethics, universal law or universal principle refers to concept of legal legitimacy whereby those principles and rules for governing human conduct which are most universal in their acceptablity, their applicability, translation, and philosophical basis, are therefore considered to be most legitimate. The concept was first put forward as verum factum (Latin for true fact) by Vico in De Italorum Sapientia.
