Important Information

Beware of the bald-heads of the law, for there are two men whom you should never go to Court against unless you are dragged there; one is he who has more money than you have, and the other is he who has no money at all. With the former you may lose even if you are in the right, and with the latter you will lose even if you win.

(Australianus (pseudonym of K.J. Back), ‘Law’, The Royal Toast, 1920)

There’s no better way of using the imagination than the study of law. No poet ever interpreted nature as freely as a lawyer interprets truth.

(Jean Giraudoux (1882-1944) Tiger at the Gaates, 1935, trans, Christopher Fry)
The power of the lawyer is in the uncertainty of the law.
Jeremy Bentham quotes (Philosopher and Activist. 1748-1832)

Lawyers generally prefer not to rush things.

(Justice Kirby (Australian Law Reform Commission, on the 52 years it has taken for lawyers to join scientists at ANZAAS) Sydney Morning Herald, Sayings of the Week, 15 May 1982))
