Summary note
"Folk Law Practices and the Exiled Brides Law, from archaic times until today, has corresponded to a cultural system regulating the relationship and activities between individuals by determining mutual rights and responsibilities. It has been equipped with several regulations for the sake of ensuring the continuity of such institutions as family, economy, education and religion. In this study, it is asserted that in addition to and/or despite the norms of law strengthened by the state authority, folk law orders also have the function of establishing order. This reality can be explained with Pluralistic Legal Theory in the field of social sciences. Thus, the processes of producing, supervising and implementing norms of non-state law orders can be described. In the study, it has been discussed how a local law order produce, inspect and implement its norms. It has been addressed with sample cases, how exile, a punishment traditionalized in the field of the study, has been sustained from past to present. The alteration and transformation of the out-of-norm premarital sexual behavior pertaining to this punishment has been discussed throughout the history of Turkish Law, on the basis of concepts suggested by structural-functional theory. In the context of Pluralistic Legal Theory and Structural-Functional Theory, norm resources of folk legal orders, their units inspecting the norms and the sanctions imposed for violation of norms have been examined based on the intercultural and local samples"--Publisher's description.
