Susan C. Ross

  • For many persons, law appears to be black magic — an obscure domain that can be fathomed only by the professional initiated into its mysteries.

  • Law ... is not a preordained set of doctrines, applied rigidly and unswervingly in every situation. Rather, law is molded from the arguments and decisions of thousands of persons. It is very much a human process, a game of trying to convince others — a judge, a jury, an administrator, the lawyer for the other side — that your view of what the law requires is correct.

Susan C. Ross, U.S. writer, activist
