Implementation and the Architecture of Law

Implementation and the Architecture of Law

(p.293) 15 Implementation and the Architecture of Law
Law in Modern Society


Oxford University Press

Although one has to comply voluntarily with the law, legal systems are equipped with rules and readily create organizations and processes to deal with some specific individuals, entities, and groups, who have to be forced before complying. Studying the processes of implementation and compliance suggest that the concepts developed and discussed in the previous chapters can be applied in a more specific manner. The discussions in this chapter involve the process of interaction between the law and those who have to follow the law as various groups of officials use different ways of implementing the law, in accordance with legal and social variables that best fit the situations involved. The main object of this chapter is to understand how laws interact with the social environment of implementation. Also, this chapter includes a discussion about the architecture or the framework involved in law as it consists of the following: concerns regarding statute, the allocation of powers, and the specification of rights and duties.

Keywords:   legal systems, compliance, implementation, interaction, social environment, officials, architecture
