Merry, Sally Engle. Human Rights and Gender Violence: Translating International Law into Local Justice . University of Chicago Press, 2006. Jacob : SLIDES Often, it may be the case that for effective law reform the real changes that are needed are not to scripts but to legal consciousness. From a broader social science viewpoint, the constitutive conception of legal consciousness treats law as an interpretative framework for everyday life, a framework that intersects with other frameworks that ordinary people utilize in their lives on an ongoing basis. Instead of law being extraordinary and special, it is in our society, ordinary and all around us (Jacobs, 15)
