WHAT ONE NEEDS TO REPRESENT ONES SELF

Filed under: A FOUNDATION FOR PRACTICING LAW — thebigpraetor @ 2:30 pm

1. The practice of law requires at the very least the following:
a. training in the construction of paradigms and syllogisms
b. extensive reading of old english common law
c. a working knowledge of the United States Constitution and the State Constitution
d. devotion to preparation, preparation, preparation of each and every case.
e. Devoted use of the Mathmatical formula: “Non Sunt Multiplicanda Entia Praeter Necessitatem ” [entities are not to be multiplied beyond necessity] popularly stated: “all things being equal, the simplest answer is always the correct answer”
f. Complete research of all the intertwined statutes and caselaw interpreting them for every issue in the case you are handling at the moment.

Should it even have to be said: ” He/she who represents himself/herself has a fool for a client”. Would you really perform your own surgery, dentistry? Then, having read the foregoing, why on earth would you believe you could or even should practice law for yourself?
