Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA

THIS IS AN ABYSS OF LEGISLATION

This is what I wrote for the first essay on my Company Law exam. "The issue as to whether a shareholder may bring an action against a company is characterised by an abyss of litigation. Practitioners and undertakings alike are jaded by the endless barrage of cases and legislation that serve more to complicate as opposed to clarify." It's essentially what I wrote, and I would have gone on to write, "If Parliament intends to avoid the lukewarm response evoked by its reforms on directorial duties, it should carefully examine the changes it proposes to make, to ensure that the subsequent legislation proves more a cause for celebration than for regret." But I had to go on to the rest of the essay, and if you're sitting there reading this and shaking your head, I just write this badly when I'm this happy!

And I know studying law can be one hell of a drag sometimes, but sometimes it is just so fun?

One thing I really loved about IP law were my teachers. My first teacher, who taught us copyright, talked about intellectual property the way I talk about KKM, and it was just such utter joy to come to school and be taught by someone who was so obviously passionately in love with what she was doing. She was American and her grasp of British law concepts could definitely have been better, but her sheer enthusiasm was utterly contagious, and I looked forward to her lessons every single week. That's why I sometimes get so mad when people say teachers don't make a difference, because they do, they really, really do, and the sad thing is that you need to be allowed the gift of a truly great teacher to be able to tell the difference.
