Halacha - length of retzuos
Submitted by baruch  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Generally we consider the right side to be more important than the left, therefore this applies even to a left-handed person. While I didn't see a specific explanation for this case, this Halacha is mentioned already in the Rishonim. Even though it is an established Halacha, if the left side is longer the tefillin are still Kosher.
