A new book i'm reading after Wuthering Heights. in this book the author intends to highlight the notion that the judiciary have become so intertwined with and influenced by government that they no longer have as much jurisdiction as they previously did in the 19th century. the author also cleverly indicates just how factual the accusation of law Lords being "Middle-class, Middle aged and middle minded" is. a thoroughly researched, factual and shockingly eye opening book, John Griffith doesn't hold back, and refuses to sugar coat just how political the judiciary has become. all in all, an exceptional book. and this is just my word for it. :)

Ciao for now

okay, i started up this blog to follow law students and blog about law, but i haven't begun uni yet! i usually blog on tumblr so i won't really be using this site much till September or maybe even after then, when i adjust to the hard work at uni (high hopes). having said this, i must bid you adieu! :)

Christ, Coffee, Books. (who says three’s a crowd?)

Today was fantastic. after evangelism with my church ( to which an estimated 50 people gave their lives to Christ), my friend Sharon and I walked down to starbucks to ‘have a cuppa’ (the act totally complimented my blog url! ) anyway, we took loads of pics but using her camera, so when she blogs ‘em i shall reblog to show. till then, all I have are the pics of the bookshop we went to afterwards, before finally settling on our local library to discover hidden novel treasures. this bookshop was awesome, I found well intriguing books, that reminded me of my desire to own my own domestic library someday. someday. it was an awesome day to sum it all up!
