When I read the new testament for example ...

Gal 3:24 "The law was our schoolmaster" ...

What was the Laws of God in the Old Testament?

It can't be the Law of Moses .. for that was the 10 Commandments. Am I correct? Those are commandments .. and not laws ..

What were the Laws in the Old Testament ...
Where are the scriptures that point to all those things we must follow?

Can you give me a list of different laws in the Old testament?

I've heard of the Law of Moses, Levitical Laws, Dietary Laws ...

I think the Law of God encompasses all of the laws mentioned above, as well as the two additional commandments which were added by Jesus. Those being to "Love God" and "Love one another."

I think all of the laws are still in effect. Meaning God can choose at his descretion during the time of judgement as to whether he wants to use them or not. I believe a certain measure of Grace is given to each of us though, so based on our faith in God and in Christ - we will have fulfilled the Law as Christ did.

Now the problem itself was never with the law, as many want to make it out to be. The problem was with evil men using the law to condemn righteous men. That's still a problem that we have even by today's standards. Sin uses the law to destroy, exalt itself, and keep men in bondage - God uses the law as a standard to demonstrate his righteousnous and love. So all of the law is entirely good, as it is representative of the good nature of God. Hope this answers your questions.

Most commonly, "the Law" refers to the first five books of the Old Testament otherwise known as the Torah.

Although most specifically it is talking about the commandments contained within various sections of those books.

And Jesus did not come to abolish the Law.....please read Matthew 5:17-19.

Someone explained it simply as being like a sign. For instance the sign reads, don't cheat, or don't kill etc. But people read signs differently depending on how they think. For instance in a parking lot there may be a sign that says "handicapped parking", the sign doesn't say that if your not handicapped you can't park there, but the intent of the sign is to allow only handicapped people to park there. Just an example.:)

The Laws Of God are the 10 commandments, which are the moral laws instilled within - the other 603 laws are those of Moses, some being based on the 10. Some Israelites believe those are non-binding on non-Jews, and that earlier the Noahaic 7 Laws ("The 7 Laws Bínay Noach"), which are not so obvious in Genesis, but are found in the Greek Scriptures (this list was saved from a post in ILink Network Religion Conference back in the early 1990's of BBS days):
