Understanding the Language of Law
Languages are important in today’s multicultural life. There are all the written languages. Then there are all the spoken languages. Let us not forget the technical languages both written and machine spoken. Wow, so many and we in one way or another need to keep up with them all. As a result Lawyer Gerald Chipeur Provides Understanding with the language of law.
As a computer IT Tech person I use a lot of different languages over many years. To the common user the ability to use these different languages does not mean a lot. The common user wants a functional computer machine. This includes the Internet. People are on the computer and cyberspace a lot today. They want everything working in tip top shape at all times. To people today it is like getting into their car. They expect that when they turn the key the engine will start. When they apply the brakes they expect their car to stop.
Constitutionality of the Extra-Provincial Application of Securities Law
There are so many things in the world today that people use but do not know the inner workings of the system or unit. One such it the inner workings of the law system. Not everyone knows how the law works or even understand the law language. I found this out this week. when I read the article, “Constitutionality of the Extra-Provincial Application of Securities Law“. This article is about security law. Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society used it in the “Trinity Western University v. Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society, 2015 NSSC 25″ case. To me a lay person in law and law understanding it was confusing. This does not mean that the article written is confusing. It means that I did not understand the law language in the article. Without great research I would not know the full understanding.
I know from the conclusion of the article that the Nova Scotia Barristers Society did not win their case. This is the way it is with many people who use the computer. They know how to turn it on and do what they want to on the computer but that is about it.
For Trinity Western University it was good for them to have a lawyer who understood the law. This lawyer know the language and understood how to use the law language so that they were able to win. The knowledge of how the securities laws work was also crucial. Because of this fact Trinity Western University won the case.
The lawyer did know how the securities laws worked. That is to say how it worked between provinces. He also knew how it worked with the federal government. Thus there was no confusion for Trinity Western University.
Language of Lawyers
It is people like Lawyer Gerald Chipeur who are able to help. People and organizations can rely on such people with such matters. If there were not lawyer to help then there would be chaotic situations. Lawyers understand the law. The usage of the language of law by the law profession continued for many years now. This is how organizations, groups, villages, towns and cities are set in order. The provinces and states are set in order with the same law understanding. Countries work with their law. All this due to people who are lawyers who put together order for the greater good of the situation.
The Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society was not successful. This was because of the knowledge and understanding of the law the judge . The Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society tried to use the provincial level to win their case. That is the law as it pertains to the securities law to win their case. This case being that all Canadian Universities follow Nova Scotia law. Even if it conflicted with their own provincial law. The case was in favour of Trinity Western University.
This shows that one province has no jurisdiction or authority in any other province of Canada. The article posted by Gerald Chipeur provides written proof of that. This also shows the great strength of the law within its own province. The law has no authority outside the provincial boundaries.
The lesson learned here I think is the following. If you are doing any type of business outside your province make sure you know the law. If you do not understand the law then go to someone like lawyer Gerald Chipeur for understanding. This is what lawyers are there for. You sure want a proper understanding and a good lawyer on your side if there is any misunderstanding. It might be much harder to turn the situation around. That is when difficulties arise without a good lawyer. When was the last time you understood the legalities of the law?
