					              Academic Disciplines: Law and Justice as Your Future Subjects

       No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's
permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not
asked as a favor.

       Theodore Roosevelt
       Well, law is one of the oldest and greatest creations of people which can be admired
or hated, but it can be never violated. The first written mentioning of laws can be found in
Ancient Egypt in the 3000 BC. Of course, modern law is much multifaceted than those first
ancient laws. However, ancient people considered many legal issues concerning various
crimes: murders, robbery, etc. Thus, such professions as lawyers, prosecutors may be
placed in the range of the oldest ones. In spite of the long history, law as an academic
discipline started its existence quite recently, a few centuries ago.
       In terms of this discipline you may study such branches as constitutional law,
criminal law, administrative law, international law, property law, labor law, family law,
immigration law, etc. Each branch of this academic discipline deals with various issues.
Law students study numerous laws, consider different cases and learn to interpret laws.
