Ok just think about reflection like a reflection of light or your reflection in the mirror or reflecting on your life that's basically i guess the law of reflection.

The law of reflection governs the reflection of light-rays off smooth conducting surfaces, such as polished metal or metal-coated glass mirrors. Consider a light-ray incident on a plane mirror, . The law of reflection states that the incident ray, the reflected ray, and the normal to the surface of the mirror all lie in the same plane. Furthermore, the angle of reflection $r$ is equal to the angle of incidence $i$. Both angles are measured with respect to the normal to the mirror. The law of reflection also holds for non-plane mirrors, provided that the normal at any point on the mirror is understood to be the outward pointing normal to the local tangent plane of the mirror at that point. For rough surfaces, the law of reflection remains valid. It predicts that rays incident at slightly different points on the surface are reflected in completely different directions, because the normal to a rough surface varies in direction very strongly from point to point on the surface. This type of reflection is called diffuse reflection, and is what enables us to see non-shiny objects.
