I see many questions here about what non-Jews in general, and Noahides in particular, may or may not do according to halacha. Does halacha have an answer to every question about what non-Jews should or should not do? For example, one Noahide law is "Establish courts of justice". This means there has to be some means of dispensing justice in a sane society, whether or not Judaism agrees with the laws being enforced.

    Does it specify all actions for Jews?

  • Also would the ideal courts of justice for non Jews use Jewish principles on stuff like damages?

  • The Seven Laws of Noah are more "categories" than "laws". For example, establishing courts of justice requires having standards on what constitutes "a fair trial", a prohibition on bribing judges or jurors, rules of evidence and testimony, and a prohibition of vigilante justice. Feb 2 at 0:28
