This has led to a shift in professional legitimation from a reliance on social origins and character values to a reliance on scientization or rationalization of technique and on efficiency of service (Abbott 1988: 179).

  • The History Of Law - 640 words
    The History Of Law The history of law is very interesting. No one can really say when law began. The earliest known written law of which a copy has been found, is Ur-Nammus Code of 2050 BC.
