I have joined a business group Westside Pepnet and have been a member for over a year and a half.

One of the many benefits of belonging, is the opportunity to explain what you do in a ten minute presentation during each of the meetings. When my turn came I stood up and spoke for ten minutes, received a very warm reception and proceeded to return to my seat. On my way one of the members at that time, Stan the Print Man, asked me as I passed ” what is it that you actually do?

I realized that I had never really given much thought to explaining what the actual role in society a lawyer performs.

I have performed this role for over thirty seven years now, right here in Colorado Springs. My answer usually began with – “well, it depends-” and then wandered off in verisimilitudes.

A society is a group of people involved in persistent social interaction, or a large social group sharing the same geographical or social territory, typically subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations.

Law is a system of rules that are created and enforced through social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior. Law as a system helps regulate and ensure that a community show respect, and equality amongst themselves.
