The ancient Egyptian legal system was based on common sense. The Egyptian goddess Ma'at was the goddess of justice. Basically, the law followed the teachings of Ma'at, according to the priests, about what was right and wrong.
In ancient Egypt, the head of government was Pharaoh. The ancient Egyptians said "Pharaoh", not the pharaoh. That's because there was only one pharaoh at a time, and Pharaoh owned everything. You did not own your home or your jewelry or your food or anything else. Pharaoh owned everything.
No remains of written laws have been found. However, since the ancient Egyptians loved lists and wrote everything down they could, it it would not surprise historians to learn they did write down (codify) some laws at least. Were the laws fair to all people? Probably.
