Introduction to Law: Second Edition | Jet.com
We are a nation of law. We have decided as an essential part of our society that we will be governed by law. What this means is the subject of this book. It is not written to make lawyers out of lay people. Rather, it is written to help make us all better, more informed citizens. Stop for a moment and imagine that when you wake up tomorrow all laws have been eliminated and all courts abolished. Think about traffic jams and accidents-if there were no traffic lights. Think about crime and punishment. How would rules be set and enforced?
