In an increasingly diversifying society, public space is the quintessential social realm where members of that diverse society meet each other. Thus space is shared, whilst norms regarding that space are not always shared. In this article a frame is offered to scrutinize the working of law in action in public space, by applying the conceptual triad of spatial thinker Lefebvre to understand how law is “produced”. It argues that how law is perceived in action is pivotal to understanding how law works in action. Moreover, it discusses the possible ramifications of the perception of law in action for how the legal system as a whole is perceived.
