Language is much more than a tool for communication. It is a social institution. New developments and forms of the language are not an exclusive grammatical, linguistic or literary phenomenon. If language changes, the thinking about law and finally the law itself will change as well. The law system is also strongly influenced by the communication media. The article examines how the hypertext culture which is typical for the internet will influence the law system in general. The author arrives at the conclusion that law will become more synaesthetical, more private, more subjective and more fluid and vague by the influences of the internet and the hypertext culture. The overall importance of law will change. The law must find a new role. If it does not meet this challenge, it runs the risk of becoming irrelevant.
