Equality before the law or equality under the law or legal egalitarianism is the principle under which each individual is subject to the same laws, with no individual or group having special legal privileges. No one is exempt or included more than another.

The phrase "Equality before the law" is the motto of the state of Nebraska and appears on its state seal.
