Distinction in Law

Lets have a clear distinction between common law and corporate legislation so everyone knows where they stand in the country. A person leaves school at 16 and has absolutely no knowledge whatsoever of the law or what their rights are so how about basic law on the school curriculum?  The first thing a person does when they are caught committing a crime is to exert their rights in one way or another or to protest for rights. It is a 'no brainer' psychologically speaking that the person commiting the crime actually did it as a protest for their rights (complicated but true). Basic psychology.

One of the biggest shams in this country regarding legislation is The Courts and Legal Services Act including any related act such as the Solicitors Act etc. To think that in the year 2010, a person only has the right to audience in court and payment of their fee's if they have been deemed worthy of a roll number given by the Law Society. That makes the legal system no more than a 'golf club' where certain people are accepted or rejected from the club. The right to audience should be available to any literate person, not just the selected few who are making lots of money from this law. In the age of internet any person can research law and make a presentation and they should have the automatic right to represent themselves or others and be funded for their efforts.

Why is this idea important?
