Checkout the GradeSaver link below. Begin reading at the second paragraph:

"In Book I, Socrates entertains two distinct definitions of justice. The first is provided by Polermarchus, who suggests that justice is "doing good to your friends and harm to your enemies...."

the view of Socrates on justice was that all men should be treated equally and fairly before the law
