Since laws have such a profound impact on daily life, it is only logical to consider how they are applied in a social context. The “functional approach” to law (Historical and Sociological Schools) emphasises how actual social circumstances shape the law and legal institutions and emphasises how people behave in groups rather than as individuals.

The historical method is simply the idea of adaptation being applied to human organizations and cultures, as Sir Fredrik Pollock correctly observed.
