Society is constantly changing. Because of the rapid developments in technology and related fields of science, the pace with which change will occur will accelerate. Law, also, as the recognized means of order in society must change rapidly to meet the demands of the new society. How can changes be implemented without destroying the stability? Short answer: A flexible legal process--a process not confined to rigid, precise rules, but a flexible process capable of meeting on the basis of reason and justice the cases as they arise.
