The paper is dedicated to the role of the language in the law-making process. In the ancient times non-linguistic signs prevailed, and the words were used along with the elements of the ritual widely implemented in the process of creating and implementing legal rules. Representatives of ancient civilizations sought to convert non-linguistic signs into words to denote the rules of human behaviour. The problem of the language in the law-making process was caused out of necessity to issue the laws in the written form. The study and development of the language in the law-making process is relevant up to now as any situation being subject to legal influence can be viewed as legal interpretation and identification. The purpose of the paper is to analyse the language in the law-making process. The essence of law is highlighted in the work as there are different definitions for law in general and the law-making process in particular. The novelty of the research is that the law making process is analysed from the angle of linguistics. The language of law has specific characteristics. Law in all its manifestations is expressed through the language. Legal orders acquire the characteristics of applicable law and appear in official written texts issued by state bodies in a strictly specified order. Any idea related to legal regulations is expressed through the language since it can be perceived and realized provided that it appears in verbal and written form.
