Civil law unlike criminal law is the type of law between individuals or organizations. I am in a business law class this semester. I have learned more about the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and other fundamental rights I have as an American citizen. I have learned about the importance of the Fifth Amendment and the 14th Amendment.
If people don’t know the laws, which protect them how can they protect themselves. Many times situations happen where people think they can do nothing. For example if there is a federal or state problem against an individual, it is vital citizens know their rights.
The best part about being an American is we have a democratic type of government. This basically means we are a government governed by the people. We decide who we want in positions of authority and who we don’t want. If we don’t want someone for mayor, all we have to do is campaign for another guy. Living in America is awesome. It is just necessary that people begin to know ther rights so they can exercise them.
The main purpose of this blog is to inform you about different types of law. There are various reasons for going to law school; some people want to practice law, some people want to enter politics with a law degree, some people want to have their own business. There are hundreds of reasons to go to law school. One important thing to be aware of is not everyone who wants to go to law school wants to be a lawyer, but some do.
An important fact is there are numerous types of law: environmental, intellectual property, oil and natural gas, criminal justice, corporate, child and family, and business. Those are only a few of the many kinds of law. I believe it is important as a pre-law student to be somewhat aware of what kind of law one may find interesting. Going to law school without reason may be slightly foolish; unless, the person has a significant amount of money they are trying to get rid of quickly. My purpose is to know about law, especially law in the United States, how it functions, why it functions, for whom it functions.
As well as discussing different types of law, I will also discuss why I am interested in attending certain law schools. There are pros and cons to every law school that interests me. By writing about what law school I am interested in, I will have a better idea of why I would want to go there.
