Historically, the concept "legal evolution" or “evolution of law” is often used to describe a group of theories that seek to explain legal changes not only in historical terms, but through a process according to certain determined or predetermined phases. It has been pointed out that these theories in their fully developed forms are essentially a 19th century phenomenon, however it is becoming increasingly clear that these ideas survived and that in the 20th century there was a significant revival of interest in these theories of legal evolution, an interest that continues in the present 21st century. The Law as a system of norms and doctrines doesn’t remain unchanged, but changes and evolves, from a historical perspective the main factors that determine the transformations of the Law will be analyzed.
