Welcome to law/lore school
Date of this Version
Extract: Law is saturated with stories. People tell their stories to lawyers; lawyers tell their clients' stories to courts; politicians develop policies to respond to their constituents' stories of injustice or inequality. These stories then translate into sources of law. Cases resolve contested stories between parties. Statutes target larger stories of social, economic or political significance. The legal system, in short, is a synthesis of statutory and judicial solutions to stories. Law is lore. Lore is law.
