Two strata of flexibility in jurilinguistics


Flexibility plays a central role in law as it ensures the application of law in changing social political, technological and economic circumstances. The aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of two types of flexibility, namely procedural and representational. The research methods applied include legal semiotic analyses of the issue at hand. The research materials encompass legislation from selected countries and representational manifestations of legal provisions with the aim of increasing the persuasiveness of compliance with the law through images. The results show that, on the one hand, flexibility ensures the elasticity and applicability of the law in an ever-changing world, but that, on the other hand, the globalization of human lives, including the increased mobility of people within and between countries (as a result of the free movement of people), flexibility and lack of uniformity of provisions can lead to unintentional non-compliance of the law.
