Is it correct to say that a law is hard or is there any other adjective to talk about laws?

'Strict', 'severe', and 'harsh' are adjectives that can be used to describe laws. 'Tough' is also frequently used in speech or informal writing. 'Draconian' is a colourful word used to describe extremely harsh laws.

The word hard doesn’t work here. I would use the term difficult to live by or difficult to live with. You could also use difficult to adhere to.
Example: The 8:00 Nazi imposed curfew law was difficult to live by as many people were still trying to make their way home at that hour after working all day.
