Law and Order



So being a law student (4yrs now), i gotta appreciate the whole legal concept of issues. Obviously some laws are just there for the sake of being there and they are not really being put to use, but other laws (being very necessary for daily life) are being the sole reason for outside world to appreciate the strength of the legal system in a country.

I plan to be a lawyer not a liar, but who am i lying to, these two work perfect together (ssshhhh..i didn't say nothing).
