Law

Did you know?

Law revolves around asking questions.  Here are some to test your legal awareness:

  • Jurors used an Ouija board in their hotel room to bring back the victim so as to find out the defendant’s guilt.  Should trial by jury be replaced?
  • Thornton sharpened the bread knife and stabbed her abusive husband.  Murder or manslaughter?
