Starting from a sociological and philosophical-legal framework, the first part of the paper attempts to question the role of criminal law in liquid society and the transformations to which it is exposed when it submits to the needs of a society demanding security characterized by relocation, temporality, digitality, volatility, vertiginous regulatory changes subject to constant obsolescence and the exasperation of uncertainty and insecurity. In the second part of the work, we have tried to land and contextualize this sociological and philosophical framework in the treatment of the question of the legitimacy of criminal law by means of three examples, chosen for their porosity and sensitivity to these social changes, such as the process of codification, the position of guarantor as a transversal category in the theory of crime and a sector of economic criminal law such as the criminal law of labor.
