The principle of the rule of law requires the setting of impeccable standards from the perspective of the objectives of legislation.

ve initiative. In turn, the last level consists of the rules determining the effectiveness of including the legal act in the institutional order accepted in a given society. On the other hand, the analysis of the law-making process concerns three aspects, i.e. theoretical, organisational and practical. In particular, the aim of the conference will be to try to identify the relations between the concepts presenting the theoretical model of law creation and the organisation of the law-making process functioning in real socio-economic conditions, surrounded by formal and informal institutional solutions that enable the realisation of the objectives and functions of law.
