The discourse of law (research essay)[1]

        “The discourse of law is an extremely complicated topic that has many sub discourses and is influenced internationally. However, when studying the discourse, one may wonder if there is one set way of studying the topic. There is no one way of studying the topic because there are so many variations within the discourse of law. One of these variations include topic of law, the type of law that one studies has its own sub discourse, this is to say that criminal law and contract law are very different than each other in both practice and language used, so one should not study different sub discourses together, as the differences between them are quite stark. Another one of these variations is international law, from country to country around the globe laws are very different and have very different motives, so one should also not. However, there are some general tendencies that most agree on. One of these tendencies is that these discourses change. Whether or not one looks at the overall discourse of law, or a smaller sub discourse, they change for many different reasons. 

       In order to look at a specific literacy one must understand discourses by itself. One article that discusses the idea of discourses is “What is Literacy?” by James Gee. He addresses the fact that discourses are fluid. Discourses are changing all the time, this can be due to many things, such as culture, advances in the field, and changes in language. So, when there are changes within the culture of a country that influences the laws, which in turn changes the discourse of law. One of these changes is a change in language. When language changes over time as new concepts and words come about, so do laws. This is because changes in language affects the entirety of that language. The author also says that some discourses carry a social power with them (19). This is very applicable in the case of the discourse of law. The ability to use the discourse of law gives that person power because they can then manipulate laws, which in turn affects anyone who must abide by those laws”.
