Remedial State Law and Legal Definition

A remedial state refers to a state which ensures that citizens have the rule making, adjudicative, and enforcement services they need to live secure and peaceful lives without providing them itself. A remedial state is actually a minimal state that provides essentials to life in a society. In a minimal state, the state has no right to use its power of coercion to interfere with free transactions between people, and see the state's sole responsibility as ensuring that transactions between private individuals are free.
