The law appears in legal texts and in typed legal situations. Textuality began to dominate with the reception of Roman law. The advancement of socially and legally used machines will decrease the importance of textuality and increase that of legal programming. Legal visualization fits this trend. The peculiarities of law form an object of visualization. Legal texts are in an abstract frame, which is not linguistically structured. Besides the types of legal situations, the pre-textual interdependencies of legal terms should be made visible. Situations can be governed by legal machines.
