Description The sociological concept of law represents one of the basic methodological approaches to law. Law is understood as a social phenomenon constituting component of the social structure of society. The sociological aspect of law concerns issues of spontaneity and intentionality in law, the relationship between factuality and normativity, and the normative power of reality. Since the 1930s, the economic concept of law has been enforced in the jurisprudence. It was developed by the school of Law and Economics. It emphasizes economic categories in law, especially the concepts of utility, cost, and use of resources. The sociological and economic approach in law meets in assessing the effectiveness of law. However, they emphasize different aspects of law effectiveness.
