This paper aims to address the moral and legal values according to John Rawls' views, more specifically on the level of influence morality has on justice, as well as the influence a group of people may have on the values of an individual. Common moral values, having a group tradition to form a common understanding of justice, or the formation of a concept of justice is not only influenced by a small group, but also from other institutions outside the group such as the state, various organizations or religion. According to Rawls, justice is not merely a moral value but something above morality, as it also belongs to law. In general, laws are based on certain moral values, but in any case, today, the law takes precedence over what might be considered ‘good.’ The concept of moral merit is the totality of various individual virtues. This moral perception also determines a considerable part of personal actions and choices.
