    Lawyer Jean Giraudoux said that “There is no better way of exercising the imagination than the study of law. No poet ever interpreted nature as freely as a lawyer interprets the truth.”As a child something in me always wanted to debate with a judge or prosecute someone or just be in the courtroom.
