One of the greatest business philosophers of all time, Mr Jim Rohn, had this to say about the law: “Everyone needs to know a little law; you don’t have to be a lawyer, but you do need to know the basics.” After many years of legal practice, both as a solicitor and a barrister, I came to realize that about 80% of the legal trouble that seems to somehow find the individual, is caused by a lack of legal awareness of a handful of common sense legal principles. There are just a couple of legal basics that every person needs to know in order to avoid or limit disaster. Will it prevent you from ever getting into trouble with the law? Probably not. Will it assist you in avoiding legal trouble as best you can? Absolutely.
The purpose of this book is to assist the average Joe Bloke, the man in the street, to become savvy enough to avoid most of the legal pitfalls that leads to drama in the courtrooms around the world. This book is written at a layman’s level. You don’t need a degree in linguistics or a legal dictionary when you read it. It is written so that parents can teach these principles to their kids.
