The law is inaccessible
And it’s a problem. There are millions of pages of statutes--and millions of court cases interpreting those laws. Different locations have different rules. It can vary from city to city, court to court, and judge to judge.
It’s nearly impossible for a regular person to sort through this maze of rules and regulations to figure what is required. For people who can’t afford an attorney, the situation can feel hopeless.
It doesn’t have to be this way
Not everything complicated is inaccessible. The microchip in the iPhone 8 has 4.3 billion transistors, capable of processing 10 billion instructions per second. Our children, however, can navigate an iPhone. We want to make the law easier to navigate. Wilson Sonsini has some of the best minds in the law.
