30th September 2010. I see the legal fraternity is going gangbusters on class actions and no win no pay lawsuits. Unless reigned in , this US inherited nonsense will distort the way we live.
I commend you to read Phillip Howards book – Life without Laywers: Liberating Americans from too much law
I quote ’ A nation in which the proportion of lawyers has doubled in the period 1970 to 2000, has become ridiculously dense with laws. Now legal self- consciousness is stiffling the exercise of judgement. … Today rights are increasingly offensive weapons wielded to inflict demands on other people, using state power for private aggrandisement’.
Read Howards book and weep for the death of commonsense.
