Someone who studies or practises Law, usually a member of the legal prfession as either a solicitor or barrister. very often the better lawyers are involved in fighting for Human Rights and Civil Liberties in courts and the academic kind often researches to find out what effects laws are having on real people.

Often insulted by people who don't know how hard work it is and how much the authorities and corporations would trample over their rights if lawyers and the law didn't exist.

A person using methods you don't understand to solve problems you can't see
Layman: what beautiful day!

Lawyer: NO! it's a horrible day filled with legal issues! But fear not, because I am reasonably convinced that we can fix the problem of the possible undermining of competition law in the UPC regime, that will manifest itself as the UPC not allowing competiton law defenses in 'hold up' standard essential patent cases as the basis for a denial of a preliminary injunction in a infringement case even if the proprietor has given an offer that is not nessecarily against the practice of giving licenses on FRAND (Fair Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory) terms, but none the less has rejected an offer from the alledged infringer that certainly does fall within the scope of FRAND terms, that is likely to appear because of the inherent risks of doctrinal isolation, by simply broadening the scope of the indispensability test, thus, not only allowing a competition law defense because the would-be licensee intends to offer a new product or service that the propritor does not provide and there is a potential consumer demand for this product or service, without there being any objectively justifiable reasons for the refusal and that the refusal must must entail an elimination of competition in a secondary market but also if the proprietor is dominant in the sector and the would be licensee gives an offer that falls within the scope of FRAND terms, even though it might be lower than what the proprietors usual fees are.

Layman: The who the where and the what now?

A lawyer or liar is an upper or middle class type of criminal who focuses on the single crime of plundering all their client's liquid or convertible assets such as their parent's home.

Their modus operandi is to overcharge very late, exploit archaic organisational skills & irrelevant focus to maximise client's costs then sue with immunity afforded by an organised Court & Justice racket operated by retired lawyers supported by an unwittingly working class home guard or 'law enforcement'.
