Legal tip 631. Creative law
04 November 2011 @ 20:10

That is the best of being a Lawyer: you can create solutions out of Law, Customs and General Principles of Law. You can change structures, systems... by argumenting their illegal nature or their illegal effects.

In Spain, we are not that linked to precedent and Case Law as Commun Law countries and therefore room for creativity, under rigurous legal reasoning is bigger.

One of the most important subjects of our Law Degree curriculum in Spain is Natural Law or Philosophy of Law , which both help to create your own legal critic spirit, your confrontational point.....

That is what counts. In that sense I learn a lot from my clients, layman people, non legal proffessionals who bring to me a continued and fresh sense of Justice beyond the limits of existing Case Law.

The power of human spirit.... oh yeah!

Cheers

Maria,
Is there nothing that good law firms can do to enact the fast track approach that Keith is calling for within his Bank Guarantee petition? Are the law societies powerless to call for this approach against the Banks?

I would firmly approach the coming Ministry of Justice on this.
Kindest regadrds,
