The function of the Act is to regulate social relations and to establish common rules acceptable to the community or society as a whole. Therefore, people accept the law in order to maintain social order and live according to the rules established by the law. On the other hand, the law often does not perform its functions properly and there are legal troubles. If the rules established by law are not observed, malfunction occurs. For example, if a person is sentenced to death, he or she must be executed in accordance with the law. However, the execution of this person could be postponed due to the ongoing debate on the prohibition of the death penalty. As a result, the violation of the law occurs. Laws have been the most important creation of our time because they control the behavior of humanity, affect our human rights and standard of living, and allow us to determine the quality of our own lives. The creation and enforcement of our laws is based on various beliefs that humanity and society act in a certain way because of the presence of law enforcement agencies (“Laws Of Government,” 2008). Cipollone v. Liggett Group, Inc. Introduction With the continuous advancement of social civilization and people`s pursuit of quality living, different styles of furniture are mixed, creating different shapes and values and providing people with more diverse choices.
Modern society works too fast. People pursue a simple vision and […] In my view, Watson`s letter shows a clear understanding of the law and how it has changed over time. Therefore, I found this writing the most convincing and I support the author`s theory that law is the basis for the study of history, sociology and even literature; Therefore, it is the center of society. On the contrary, Sassoon`s idealistic theory of law tends to ignore the material or objective side of law. Despite the vivid demonstration of the old laws and how they were actually enforced, he proved that modern laws were controversial. Therefore, I did not find his position improved, because I believe that contemporary laws are made to establish all human rights equally. However, both Watson and Sassoon have common ground regarding the former implementation of the law in society. Moreover, both suggest that law is at the heart of the social continuum. I would like to begin by explaining the term globalization using the following definitions: Globalization refers to all the processes by which the peoples of the world are integrated into a single global society, the world society (p.9).
– Albrow 1990 Globalism moves […] Law and society are linked. Nothing can be explained without them. Society becomes a lawless jungle. The law must also be amended according to the changes that society is facing, because without the necessary changes, the law cannot keep pace with society. Without the control of the law, society has become a jungle, or at least barbaric. Thus, to maintain peace in society, we must create a harmonious relationship between law and society. We can take our example from our country, where we see so many crimes every day. But for lack of evidence, the criminal is released or there are too few penalties that violators do not care about. Only the example, we can see few cases of teasing from Eve.
The law plays an important role as an instrument of social control, because the violation of the law implies the punishment of violators. At the same time, the law or social changes change in order to meet the needs of society. However, the law fails to prevent social inequalities. Instead, the law only sets the rules and people should obey them, regardless of their social status. However, in the history of humanity and political and legal thought, there are other views on law – real, associated with attempts to define its content and reveal its essence. Law in the material sense acts in the form of rules, a form or type of right, which is absolutely interpreted as an independent entity (truth) that reveals itself in the form of justice, freedom and equality, more precisely in the form of rules that determine an equal and just degree of freedom of persons in society. These rules can only be essentially general. There is therefore a community based on the rule of law as a material attribute.
The role and functions of the law in relation to the economy and society oversee the protection of the public, business owners, including individual states. The complexity of our legal system is a necessary tool for the successful maintenance of our society, and if a person decides to ignore the laws that have been put in place for the security of society, it has consequences for these illegal acts. Without the presence of our legal system, no one would ever be safe and chaos would eventually reign. Historically, law was and is a dynamic system of rules and norms designed to meet the interests and needs of society. Real life, however, is very different from the ideal view of law as a kind of social contract that prevents all conflicts within society. In stark contrast, the law is often the tool to put control from the ruling minority over the oppressed majority. Even today, the ruling elite attempts to exercise strict control and draft laws that suit the interests of a few rulers, while often neglecting the interests of the majority and ordinary citizens. Thus, one of the most important paradoxes and dysfunctions of contemporary law in the United States is highlighted. On the one hand, the law guarantees the equality of all before the law and equal rights and freedoms for all. On the other hand, inequality persists and equality of rights and freedoms does not always mean equality of opportunity.
Instead, socio-economic inequality often determines social position, while the law serves the interests of the economic elite, which has control over policy-making and legislative work. In doing so, the legislator serves the interests of the rich, while other citizens are of little importance to them. This trend has been observed in the past, for example during the Great Depression, when anti-union and anti-strike laws were introduced. This trend can now be traced when considering government support for big business during the economic recession, when thousands upon millions of Americans lost their jobs and cannot afford to live. The development of legal concepts, like any other theory, is always linked to trends in social development. This attachment is not a unilateral conditioning of ideas by the socio-political situation, but a cyclical determination. Not only are ideas governed by reality, but reality is identified by society`s ideas – in particular, this is the realm of implementing legal ideas. The two main concepts of law (the result of reduction) correspond to two types of social practices. The first type is called voluntarist theory – the practice of socio-political voluntarism, and the second is material (natural-legal) theory – the practice of the rule of law and the rule of law. Therefore, formal theories, generated to some extent by political voluntarism, lead to this, justify them in socio-political practice and ignore the material (objective) aspects of law, ultimately leading to a stagnation of social evolution. On the contrary, by imposing certain requirements on the content of the law, the doctrine will undoubtedly contribute to improving the legal quality of legislative activity. In addition, it contributes to changing the nature and direction of social development.
While justice, law and the legal system play a major role in modern society, they cannot function without lawyers. The role of a lawyer has several implementations and affects different areas of society. These are people who, by obtaining such a profession, are entrusted with a variety of duties and responsibilities. Advocates are important to the community because of their performance as spokespersons for others (Kagan, 2003). To describe the general role of lawyers, it can be said that they aim to find the most effective way to resolve the conflict and protect society from these conflicts. Therefore, it should be noted that the role of the lawyer imposes moral and legal obligations on clients and other legal entities. The life of the current generation is very different from that of the oldest. Things have changed considerably.
The way things worked in the past is not the same as it is today, because new systems of action have been brought to the attention of society. The way we consolidate things is different […] One of the essential characteristics of our social and individual life is the law. The constitutional conception considers the law as an act of res judicata, which is adopted by the supreme organ of the State in a predetermined manner and in a certain form. The development of a constitutional understanding of law projected the actual processes of democratization of European states and the desire of liberal thinkers to justify the need to limit absolute monarchy. For example, in the context of formal legal theory, law is considered the only legal form (Sassoon, 2005). In formal legal theory, any positive right is reduced to legislation, law is recognized as the highest and most perfect form of law, as an instrument of progress that has educational value. This article aims to examine the nature of the law by examining several commissioners and revealing the role of a lawyer in society. In summary, it seems necessary to affirm that the law is a multifunctional system that represents and operates in all areas of human activity. It is the system of rules that governs the conduct of public institutions.
