Description Law not only reflects the existing social situation but also plays an important role when the situation changes. Law manifests itself in its conservative aspects, its innovative effects on the social relationships, in the actions taken by social institutions and in the course of social processes. It acts as an independent and dependent variable of social change in society; it is both the cause and the result of a social change. The legal tools of social change legitimize the ongoing social changes and help to enforce them via the authority of law. In the process of post-modernization, law not only reflects and affirms social changes in society but it also becomes more and more important tool of social change.
