    I'm a life long student.. I've been in school continuously.. usually 1 class at a
    time for most of the last 20 years.. I've also been engaged in a continuous
    \ self study regimen for over 20 years.. a couple of years ago, I took a full
    load of law classes for 2 full terms at Merritt College here in Oakland.. By
    the way,
    we have an excellent community college system here in the Bay Area.. back then
    it was only $20 per unit. I bought my books from Amazon.com.. I always by
    previous edition books, so I spent no more than 5 or 6 dollars per book.. anyway
    I had always been interested in the Law.. it started
    with Perry Mason.. then went on to every legal show you could think of.. anyway..
    While taking these classes, I came to the realization that I had not really really
    understood history as well as I had imagined.. I discovered that a detailed
    understanding of the Law was a prerequisite to really getting a grip on history..
    on our history, on Americas history.. on Brittish History.. etc.. When you
    read the caselaw and the legislation that codified our positions in society,
    it brings a new kind of sensibility.. a new sense of clarity that general ideas
    about the law cannot access.. I think you have to get down deep into the
    cases and the legislation to really understand how white supremacy works..

    After this class, I started following and reading legislation.. printing out the
    bills and going through every word.. So, when I got to speak about No Child
    Left Behind at the school board meeting, I was not talking in general, I sudd
    enly had legs to stand on.. and I realized something shocking: They hadn't
    even read the legislation. The Adminstrators of the program had not even
    read the bill. Everyone was working off of a CNN snippet.. an oversimplified
    narrowed down version of what it was.. It was eye-openining... so, I said
    all that to say this: It's worth it, to spend some time getting up close and
    personal with the law.. take a class.. read a book.. and not just criminal
    law.. Tort Law.. Constitutional law.. Real Estate Law.. it's all worth your
    time..

    No joke my Brother. I see you did another post on the law, will post there I suppose.

    I study law now (outside U.S), and what you are saying is too true. If more of us "conscious" Brothers studied law we would all be better off. No diggity.

    One,

    You are so right on point.

    I do a lot of law reading myself. I have not taken any classes but I am proficient in the use of a law library. I once wrote an addendum to a real estate transaction on a house I was buying and presented it at escrow.
    Got that extra cash, out of the seller too. Present all addendums at the signing and pressure the deal. If they hadn't signed I was willing to walk away.

    When I was in Missouri as a teen, I studied and filed a case that got my sisters boyfriend out of paying for damages in an auto accident. Of course what motivated me was I was driving his car and was in the accident.

    Spend some time getting familiar with the law libraries in Oakland, Hayward, and there is one on First Street in San Jose. I spent many months on Stanfords campus in their law library.

    Your right about studing different law disciplines, it comes in handy.
    I recently filed a case in Superior Court, won the case too.
    By filing, I stalled the proceedings long enough, and filed with the American Arbitration Association and got the original case kicked out of court.

    that's impressive.. it's amazing how many cases are decided by Default judgements..
    folks just get intimidated.. and so many of those judgements are bogus,
    unsupported and outright lies.. but, if you don't answer, the judge will sign it.
    And that's the thing that amazes me.. if you don't bring it up, the judge wont
    bring it up either.. so what is his/her purpose? it's crazy.. and if we want
    to open a school and teach what we know about the law, we can't. That's
    dirty.. I think we have been bamboozled into focusing too much on the
    spiritual humanist side of existence.. and have left the procedural side to the
    supremacist and the opportunists.. We need to start some underground
    law schools that teach our folks how to exercise their rights.. not just
    protesting but taking legal action.. in pro per.. no lawyer fees.. start a boot-
    leg movement and spread across the country like those Madea tapes.. :)

    You can

    I ran an after school program that was bigger than just the kids. We had some programs for adults and one piece was having law students come in and teach them what they could and could not do within the law pertaining to leasing, the police and answered questions about whatever. This could be done accross the country and take it to the level you suggest. I like it !!

    I want to see all of these specialized secretized fields broken down to common
    knowledge.. see if we can dissipate all that power caged up in those secret
    places.. I think the internet is the way to do it.. it's just a matter of
    getting the material and the distribution system together.. we can distribute
    via filesharing technology.. for free.. imagine what all those organizations
    fighting for us in the 50s and 60s and 70s would have done with what we have
    right here right now..

    You are so right !!!!

    I actually wanted to be an lawyer in my early years. I was enthusiastic and idealistic. lol @ myself at that time.

    But I fooled around and worked for a law firm and the realization set in how the law really goes. So I changed my major to sociology. It was more fitting to my persona. But I agree that it is beneficial to us all to have knowledge on the law in every arena.

    But This is a awesome site and the information is flowing and on point. You may want to check it out.

    Have a wonderful New years and stay safe. Love ya and peace
