I'm officially a student again: a Law College student to be precise. As of now I've attended a grand total of 4 lectures in 2 days already. Yes, I am going to become a lawyer in roughly 3 years time. Now everybody run for cover while there's still time. On a serious note, this is a chance for me to practice what I preach - that everybody should know the basics of Law - if only to know our rights and duties in a democratic society. The only thing about my course is that the college is quite distant from home and it takes a one-and-a-half hour train journey (apart from travel to and from the railway station) to get there. So nearly four hours a day is wasted on travel alone, but that's not too bad. The course looks to be interesting and becoming a practising advocate (or barrister, if you prefer) at the end of it has a lot of perks and benefits in society (along with the prestige).
