MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation sets out to investigate the effect and limitations of strict adherence in the legal system. In establishing this, the essay examines first a few examples of the different forms of procedures that exist in the legal system, particularly in the courts. After identifying these procedures, the negative effects and limitations that they have on judges, lawyers and the ordinary citizens are discussed. Limitations on judges and lawyers are viewed as directly detrimental to the ordinary citizens. This paper through research found that the legal system is not very user friendly and has numerous complexities that maybe attributed to lawyers or persons in the legal profession who choose to complicate the rules in order to secure their continued existence. As such, this paper recommends that a well balanced middle ground must be found between the need for strict adherence to the legal system and the need to effect justice even if it goes against such procedure.
