    The first step to understanding how to use Robert’s Rules of Order to run a meeting is understanding a little bit about why they are the way they are, which means a basic understanding of parliamentary lawParliamentary law is a branch of common law that governs the proceedings of deliberative assemblies.Robert’s Rules of Order is a specific variant of parliamentary law that is both a theoretical basis and a ‘how-to’ guide for conducting business in democratically elected deliberative assemblies. 

    All common parliamentary procedures are structured to serve the balance of these principles against the need to make timely decisionsSee below for some examples:

    1. Protection of the rights of members, and those whom they represent.
    2.  The requirement for a deliberative process of full and free discussion as a prerequisite to democratic decision-making 
    3. Protection against instability
