Expressive function of law

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The expressive function of law is the effect of law to create or validate social norms beyond the fear of punishment.[1][2] For example, the criminalization of homosexuality may be maintained in order to express disapproval of homosexuality, even if it is not regularly enforced.[3]
