Why I love the law

In honor of Valentine’s Day, Indiana Lawyer asked their readers to tell us why they love the law. The responses contain a common theme – people – whether it’s working with talented colleagues, teaching others about the law or helping people navigate through the legal waters.

Robert W YorkI love the law because I like lawyers – well, most of them – particularly those who recognize we should solve rather than create problems and those who follow the advice of a wise judge that “collegiality costs nothing.” I love the law because it requires mutual adherence to established rules resulting in orderly resolution of disputes that no other part of our society can resolve. I love the dignity of the courtroom, the privilege of representing others and the wisdom and experience required to do so effectively. I love that no day brings the same challenges as the day before.
