Today’s #kanji is 法, which is listed under the radical of #さんずいへん（氵）, which suggests a connection with water. 法 used to be written as 灋, which is a compound ideograph made of 水 (water for being level or fair), 廌 (a divine animal) and 去 (to leave). Apparently 廌 could reveal sins of guilty people, so innocent people could leave and guilty people were punished.
