The Sociological Theory says that law is in a state of constant change. These changes are brought in according to the needs of the society. This leads to the theory that it is the people (society) that determines what is right and what is wrong.

Example

  • Modern law is made by way of legislation by the representatives of the people. The legislators bring in law that reflects the needs and aspirations of the people.
  • If a law that is not favored by the people makes it through the legislation, the people can move the Courts and get it invalidated if it is violation of the Constitution.
