Actually being a lawyer...
It's on the wane at the moment as a possibility for my future. I haven't been engaged much lately in thinking about common problems of the average person. I think that's what I'm most interested in. Also, it's totally unrealistic to think that publishing statutes gives basically anybody any notice of what the law is. If the law is anything like common sense, then people know what they should and shouldn't do. If it's not, then it will be a total "gotcha" afterwards.
Lawyers, judges, and law professors need a reality check about just how real, regular people view the law. Shouldn't the law work the way regular folks expect it to, or better?
