Autor: Lecturer Diana Anca ARTENE
The judicial responsibility is acknowledged in the judicial doctrine2, as being ‘the starting point’ of the entire social responsibility, position that continues to have from ancient times until today, thus providing an expression of Law on its most concerted form, which reflect the stage of evolution of the entire social life.
Expressing forms and realities of social life, both values and norms are ideal standards of conduct, perceived as individual requirements by each member of society3.
The human action enforces the compliance of certain rules and its subordination of certain goals and interests, according to a system of principles and criteria; this is because the individual lead his existence in a relational system with others, a system characterized by extensive interactions and interdependencies.
In any society may appear different types of conduct, whose broad includes those conformist, innovative, as well as those non-conformists, escapist or deviant.
As full integration of the individual in society, legal norms are not an exclusive element; these are the foundation of a set of rules for the most various types. The institution of social responsibility arises precisely in this way, representing a higher level of integration of the individual in the society.

Articol 3 - Considerations regarding law as an instrument of communication
Autor: Associate researcher Claudiu Ramon BUTCULESCU, Ph.D.
This paper tackles the possibility of envisioning law as an instrument of communication, using systemic and informational models. The effects of legal communication have a profound influence on the evolution of the system of law and also on national legal cultures. The means through which law is communicated, as well as the analysis of the information that is transmitted, along with the legal noise generated by the poor understanding of legal norms, are briefly discussed in the paper. In this direction, legal linguistics are analyzed, especially the phrasing of legal norms, with regard to syntax, morphology, phonetics and semantics, as well as their influence on the Romanian legal system. Beside legal linguistics, the analysis of legal semiotics within the communication of law is also discussed, as the system of law is considered an abstract and analytical normative system, which uses texts and codes. Careful analysis of legal communication, using the concepts of legal linguistics and legal semiotics could help alleviate the effects of the faulty communication of law and enhance the understanding of legal norms by the general public.
