Most lawyers are in private practice, concentrating on criminal or civil law. In criminal
law, lawyers represent individuals who have been charged with crimes and argue their
cases in courts of law. Attorneys dealing with civil law assist clients with litigation, wills,
trusts, contracts, mortgages, titles, and leases. Other lawyers handle only public-interest
cases—civil or criminal—concentrating on particular causes and choosing cases that
might have an impact on the way law is applied. Lawyers sometimes are employed full
time by a single client. If the client is a corporation, the lawyer is known as “house
counsel” and usually advises the company concerning legal issues related to its business
activities. These issues might involve patents, government regulations, contracts with
other companies, property interests, or collective-bargaining agreements with unions.

Research has long demonstrated that the existence of dry counties increases alcohol-
related automotive accidents and fatalities. For example, a recent study of about 39,000
alcohol-related traffic accidents in wet compared to dry counties in Kentucky found that a
higher proportion of dry counties' residents are involved in such crashes.

The analysis suggests that residents of dry counties have to drive farther from their homes
to consume alcohol, thus increasing impaired driving exposure.

Christopher Yeazell Bio :Civil law codifications based closely on Roman law, alongside
some influences from religious laws such as Canon law and Islamic law,continued to
spread throughout Europe until the Enlightenment; then, in the 19th century, both France,
with the Code Civil, and Germany, with the Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, modernised their
legal codes. Both these codes influenced heavily not only the law systems of the
countries in continental Europe (e.g. Greece), but also the Japanese and Korean legal
traditions.Today, countries that have civil law systems range from Russia and China to
most of Central and Latin America.The United States follows the common law system
described below.Common law and equity are legal systems where decisions by courts are
explicitly acknowledged to be legal sources. The "doctrine of precedent", or stare decisis
(Latin for "to stand by decisions") means that decisions by higher courts bind lower
courts. Common law systems also rely on statutes, passed by the legislature, but may
make less of a systematic attempt to codify their laws than in a "civil law" system.

Commercial .Admiralty law and the Law of the Sea lay a basic framework for free trade
and commerce across the world's oceans and seas, where outside of a country's zone of
control. Shipping companies operate through ordinary principles of commercial law,
generalised for a global market. Admiralty law also encompasses specialised issues such
as salvage, maritime liens, and injuries to passengers. Intellectual property law aims at
safeguarding creators and other producers of intellectual goods and services. These are
legal rights (copyrights, trademarks, patents, and related rights) which result from
intellectual activity in the industrial, literary and artistic fields.Restitution deals with the
recovery of someone else's gain, rather than compensation for one's own loss.Unjust
enrichment is the third pillar of civil law (along with contract and tort).

Judges who are more inclined to find in favor of defendants may let more guilty people
go without punishment. Similarly, judges who are more inclined to find in favor of the
prosecution may falsely punish more innocent victims.

This doesn’t prove that a “tough” judge is punishing the innocent or that a “lenient” judge
is turning the guilty back onto the roads. Each has to be evaluated on the basis of a
sophisticated analysis of all cases heard by that judge and others in the same jurisdiction,
along with all other relevant factors.

Christopher Yeazell Judge :The legislation was successfully promoted by Alaska


House Representative Tom Anderson and a trade group, the Alaska Cabaret, Hotel,
Restaurant & Retailers Association (Anchorage chapter). The latter will closely monitor
the program to evaluate its success in reducing drunken driving.

Hard core drunk drivers are responsible for a large proportion of alcohol-related crashes,
injuries and fatalities. For their own safety and that of others, it's important to identify
such drivers, remove them from the road, provide effective treatment, and bring about
behavior change before permitting them to drive again.

Chris Yeazell Services Public international law has a special status as law because there is
no international police force, and courts (e.g. the International Court of Justice as the
primary UN judicial organ) lack the capacity to penalise disobedience.However, a few
bodies, such as the WTO, have effective systems of binding arbitration and dispute
resolution backed up by trade sanctions.Conflict of laws (or "private international law" in
civil law countries) concerns which jurisdiction a legal dispute between private parties
should be heard in and which jurisdiction's law should be applied.
