Contemporary society is organized through laws, many abstruse, if not altogether inexplicable. As lawyers we both write the laws and interpret them. It is a great privilege to have such a responsibility in determining the rules that allow for our best choice at peace and order, the protection of our weakest members, and the restraint of our strongest. It is an even greater privilege to be allowed two shots at getting it right.
