dc.description.abstractThis project will focus on how many Americans know their rights. The difference between law language structure and daily language spoken amongst citizens will be explained and prove to be quite insightful. I will explain why citizens have difficulty understanding the law, why this calls for a need of lawyers, and I will highlight why this call is both beneficial and harmful. I decided to make this the basis of my project simply because every American citizen is affected by the law regardless of comprehension. Since the law is something that is constantly changing and being updated, it is quite an understatement to say that many do not know their rights to the extent at which they should; including myself. Understanding this phenomenon, figuring out why it exists, and what steps should be taken to end this phenomenon is something that many can benefit from. Here, I will provide the details of a hypothetical situation that is easily applicable to millions of Americans. Questions will be posed to better understand the hypothetical, to cause reconsideration of prior understanding, while simultaneously highlighting the main point of this paper: understanding that law is more difficult than it should be and that the solution may not be as easy as it may seem.en_US
