16 Implementation: the Legal and Social Environment
Law in Modern Society


Oxford University Press

While the first step in the implementation process involves analysing the architecture and structure of law, the second step involves looking into the social environment around the said architecture. In studying the social environment, one has to consider the legal environment, or understand the issues and effects that are directly linked with legal design. Also, the wider social context involved in the interaction of law with its environment must be looked at. It is furthermore important to look at the attitudes and goals that officials want to achieve because these are reflected in the way that laws are designed. Officials do not only interpret rules, but they also have to come up with decision-making procedures about how the rules should be applied.
