lets get those priorities straight!
You donīt know how much I would like to do that. But I started with law, stayed with it for far too long not to finish it now.
So we will have 2 lawmens by march?
Iīm afraid so. But there is nothing to fear from me since my legal English is not very good. So there will be no such elaborate statements from me as the ones by the original lawman ;).
You guys are really great. Thanks to all for your kind words.
Iīll probably come by every so often just for a change of mind but donīt expect any great posts from me for a while
If I can remember anything of finishing exams etc, is that it is extremely difficult to stay away from your real hobbies/interests 24/24. Good luck and your quality posts will be missed.
Do you realize that this is the most successful thread I have started so far? ;)
Iīve put all criminals behind prison bars, released the innocent and protected the weak for today :)
Now itīs time for dinner and some reading ;)
Letīs hope I have enough to write to need that second pen. Today I had a slight panic attack because I couldnīt find my passport which you need for the exams. I found it in the end.
Where preparation meets opportunity
My preparation could have been better, but I guess thatīs the way you feel before an exam.
impressive self discipline
I had a good laugh about that 4eyes. :) If it werenīt for my impressive self discipline (read: lack thereof) I would have gotten my degree 3 years ago. But better late than never.
Make sure to use your knowledge of scripting well in the court of law
I was the defendant in a civil suit once. That was great fun since I was not the person who owed the plaintiff any money. They just sued the wrong Andreas Friedrich. But I didnīt tell them that. In my defense I just pointed out why the suit had to be dismissed on procedural grounds. That made the other sideīs attorney only work harder and attack me even more.
On the day of the trial the plaintiffīs lawyer was late. Immediately I applied for the case to be dismissed. The judge dismissed that saying I had to wait 30 minutes, only then would the lawyer be deemed late. However, this is only true when both sides are represented by lawers and even then it is not really true. I was able to show that to the judge. She decided I still had to wait. I applied for immediate judicial review of this matter by the High Court. This motion was denied, which she had no authority to do, but to which I had no immediate remedy. When the plaintiffīs lawyer finally arrived he informed the judge that I was the wrong person. To this I immediately applied for the case to be dismissed. Despite my protests the judge allowed the case to go on which legally she couldnīt do without my consent as defendant. The plaintiff just had to serve the charge to the right person.
In the end I got 15 Euro for my troubles and expenses. I could have appealed against this decision but then I had other things to do.
Is there such a thing in law? In the end most of it comes down to arguing. And there is hardly any position that is not held by some court or academic.
Donīt worry troels, Iīm not really fluent in Danish. I used to be able to follow a conversation in Norwegian (havenīt had the opportunity for a long time) and given the similarities between those languages I might just pick out the really mean things you have to say about this profession ;)
